A soldier with NATO's International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) has been killed in an explosion in volatile southern Afghanistan, the alliance said on Saturday.

The trooper was killed by a home-made bomb on Friday, a NATO statement said without giving details of the nationality of the victim.

"An ISAF service member died yesterday as a result of an IED (improvised explosive device) strike in southern Afghanistan," it said.

The latest casualty brings the number of foreign soldiers killed to 144 so far this year, according to an AFP tally.

Also on Friday three German soldiers were killed and eight wounded in a Taliban ambush as they were clearing bombs in northern Kunduz province.
