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.
