NATO says one of its service members has been killed in an insurgent attack in southern Afghanistan.

The alliance says the service member died on Friday -- the fifth to be killed that day in attacks around the country.

NATO's statement on Saturday provided no further details or the nationalities of those killed.

The deaths raise the number of international troops killed in September to 12. More than 400 members of the international military coalition have died do far this year.
