/ Source: The Associated Press

NATO officials said an international service member has been killed in an insurgent attack in Afghanistan, making it the eighth person killed in one day.

NATO had previously reported three other service members died in fighting on Saturday. And the coalition said another four were killed in a vehicle accident.

NATO did not provide details on the incidents or the nationality of the dead, in keeping with a policy of waiting for national authorities to released such information.

The latest death brings the total to 38 NATO service members killed so far this month, and 244 for the year.
