Two NATO International Security Assistance Force service members were killed in an attack in eastern Afghanistan on Monday.

According to what Kabul police told the Los Angeles Times:

[A] bomb placed on a bicycle exploded near a convoy of coalition military vehicles, resulting in casualties.

The Associated Press reports the bomb blast took place in the eastern part of Kabul, Afghanistan's capital city.

Insurgents have been targeting military convoys in recent weeks, according to The A.P.

It is the policy of the NATO ISAF not to identify the nationalities of troops killed in the line of duty, but to allow the home countries of the fallen to do so.
