Two NATO Soldiers Killed in Afghanistan

Two NATO soldiers have died in an explosion in southern Afghanistan.

NATO's International Security Assistance Force released a statement Wednesday saying the soldiers were killed by an improvised explosive device. Officials did not disclose the soldiers' nationalities.

Separately, NATO says coalition forces captured a Taliban sub-commander late Tuesday while searching a compound in Nangarhar province, east of Kabul. An ISAF statement says the unidentified sub-commander was involved in kidnappings, weapons purchases and spying on coalition forces.

ISAF also says allied forces captured several other suspected militants in Helmand province late Tuesday.
