The U.S.-led coalition is reporting that two more NATO service members have been killed in Afghanistan. The deaths raise Thursday's toll to seven international troops killed in the country.

The coalition said on Friday that one service member died in a roadside bomb explosion in eastern Afghanistan and another was killed in an insurgent attack in the south. There were no further details and the nationalities of the two were not disclosed.

Earlier, U.S. military officials said five American troops died in a roadside bombing Thursday in the south.

So far this year, 376 American and other NATO service members have died in the war in Afghanistan.
