KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) - The U.S.-led coalition says five NATO service members have been killed in a roadside bombing in southern Afghanistan.

In a statement, the coalition said the five died Thursday, but disclosed no other details about the deaths.

The deaths raise to 51 the number of foreign service members killed so far this month in Afghanistan.

So far this year, at least 374 international troops have died in the war.
