Afghanistan: Nato soldier killed in blast in north

A Nato soldier has been killed in a bomb attack in northern Afghanistan, the alliance says.

The Nato-led International Security Assistance Force (Isaf) has not given details of the incident or the nationality of the dead soldier.

More than 50 Nato soldiers have been killed in Afghanistan this month.

Northern Afghanistan was once considered relatively peaceful but has seen a recent upsurge in bombings and other attacks.

The worst of the violence in Afghanistan is still in the south and east.
