2 ISAF soldiers die in IED blast.

KABUL (PAN): Two International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) soldiers were killed in a roadside bombing, the Taliban's weapon of choice, in southern Afghanistan on Thursday, the alliance said.

The deaths were announced in a brief statement from the NATO-led force that neither revealed the victims' nationalities nor the exact location of the incident. But mostly, US, British and Canadian troops are stationed in the Taliban's southern heartland.

So far during the current year, 266 international soldiers, including 205 Americans, have been killed across the country. Last year, 566 foreign troops were killed in Afghanistan.
