KABUL (AFP) Five Nato soldiers including two British and two Americans have died in Taliban-style bomb attacks in Afghanistan, Nato and British authorities said Saturday. One British and one American soldier were killed in two attacks on Saturday while the other troopers died a day earlier, Natos International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) and Britains defence ministry said. Another Nato soldier was killed in a separate attack on Saturday, Isaf said, without giving the troopers nationality. Isaf said the four other deaths were the result of three separate attacks employing improvised explosive devices, or IEDs, the single biggest killer in the nearly nine year-old war. The British casualties included a marine from 40 Commando Royal Marines, who died in an explosion in the volatile Sangin district of southern Helmand province on Friday. The second soldier, from The Royal Dragoon Guards, died in a blast in the Nahr-e Saraj district of Helmand on Saturday, the ministry said. He was part of a patrol providing security to allow the construction of new roads and security bases, it said. An airman from Britains Royal Air Force Regiment who was serving as part of the Camp Bastion Force Protection Wing in Helmand died on Friday in a traffic accident, British military spokesman Lt-Col James Carr-Smith said. Casualty figures for international troops in Afghanistan have spiked in the past two months, with 102 in June, the highest monthly toll since the war began soon after a US-led invasion toppled the Taliban regime in late 2001. A total of 377 foreign soldiers have lost their lives in Afghanistan since the start of this year, according to an AFP tally based on one kept by the independent website www.icasualties.org. Some 321 British forces, personnel and civilians working for the MoD have now died in Afghanistan since 2001. Britain has around 10,000 troops in the country as part of the international force fighting the Taliban. Britains Ministry of Defence said the families of the latest victims have been informed. Isaf also announced the capture of a Taliban activist whom intelligence indicated ... was involved in coordinating an attack in Kabul during the upcoming Kabul Conference, it said in a separate statement.
