Coalition service member in Afghanistan.

NATO today announced the death of an International Security Assistance Force service member in southern Afghanistan on Wednesday.

The United States-led international coalition reports the troop died "as a result of an enemy forces attack."

As per standard procedure, the NATO casualty report states:

It is ISAF policy to defer casualty identification procedures to the relevant national authorities.

The Associated Press reports the service member who died Wednesday in Afghanistan is the 11th NATO troop killed so far in June...

...with eight of the fatalities being American.

So far this year, 40 NATO troops have died in Afghanistan, including 29 Americans.
