KABUL, Afghanistan -- NATO forces say an improvised explosive device has killed two of its service members in southern Afghanistan.

The international military coalition did not provide details on Wednesday's attack or the nationalities of the service members.

International forces have been fighting pitched battles for control of the southern part of the country, which is a key Taliban stronghold.

The latest deaths bring to 23 the number of coalition service members who have died in Afghanistan so far this month.
