NATO says insurgents have killed a service member in southern Afghanistan.
The alliance provided no further details on the killing, which took place Friday. Meanwhile, Afghan police say their troops accidentally killed two civilians on Friday after the Taliban infiltrated an anti-NATO rally and shot dead a police officer in the southern province of Zabul.
Provincial police chief Mohammad Nabi Ilham says the residents of the town of Qalat were protesting a NATO operation that killed three suspected insurgents overnight.
He says Taliban fighters shot dead one policeman and wounded two others. Afghan police returned fire, killing the two civilians and also wounding two others.
