Another US-led soldier has been killed and two others wounded during a rocket attack in eastern Kunar province in Afghanistan.
The Hezb-i-Islami group has claimed responsibility for the attack on Thursday.
A spokesman for the group claimed many foreign troops were killed in the attack.
The death brings to 340 the number of US-led foreign soldiers killed in Afghanistan so far this year.
Elsewhere, a roadside bomb blast ripped through a UN vehicle, killing three people on board.
The victims were members of the UN staff. No one has claimed responsibility for the attack yet.
