[April 01, 2010]  KABUL (AP) -- NATO says another international service member has been killed in action in Afghanistan.

A NATO statement says the service member died Saturday in a roadside bombing in southern Afghanistan but gave no further details.

Southern Afghanistan is the focus of the current NATO campaign against the Taliban. U.S., NATO and Afghan forces seized the town of Marjah in Helmand province from the Taliban last month and are stepping up operations in neighboring Kandahar province, the spiritual birthplace of the Taliban.
