Foreign soldier killed in Afghanistan

A foreign soldier has been killed in an insurgent attack in southern Afghanistan, Nato has said.

The soldier, whose nationality was not disclosed, died in a fight with militants on Tuesday, the Nato said in a statement.

More than 500 foreign soldiers have been killed in Afghanistan this year.

Support for the war in Afghanistan is waning in the US and other troop-contributing countries as the death toll continues to rise.
