KABUL (AFP) - Five foreign soldiers and three police officers were killed in Afghanistan on Sunday, while three civilians lost their lives in separate blasts caused by home-made devices, NATO and the government said. NATOs International Security Assistance Force also said that a child was killed after being caught in the crossfire between troops and militants. The five military deaths - three after an insurgent attack in eastern Afghanistan - and two in roadside bomb blasts in the south round off a bloody weekend for foreign forces after three soldiers were killed on Saturday. A total of 641 foreign service personnel have now been killed in Afghanistan this year, according to an AFP count based on the independent icasualties. org website, which tracks coalition fatalities and injuries. Improvised explosive devices account for the majority of coalition fatalities, although civilians are more often the victims of the bombs, according to the United Nations. In a sign of the risks faced by Afghan police, three officers were killed and two others injured when their vehicle hit a roadside bomb in the Tarin Kot district of Uruzgan, the provincial governor Khudai Rahim said. The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack, said spokesman Khan Agha Miakhail. Elsewhere, three civilians were killed and 20 others were wounded in homemade bomb blasts in eastern and southern Afghanistan, the government and local officials said. One person died and nine others were wounded, including six children and two women, when a homemade bomb in a wheelbarrow went off in the eastern city of Jalalabad, Afghanistans interior ministry said. The attack happened near a NATO military base where Taliban fighters launched a pre-dawn attack on Saturday. Another two people were killed and 11 others injured when a motorcycle bomb exploded in Spin Boldak, near the Pakistan border in Kandahar province. The Kandahar provincial governors office said the bomb was intended for border police but no officer was injured. A similar style bomb injured five in Kandahar city hours later. ISAF announced later that two children were inadvertently caught in the crossfire when a joint Afghan National Army and NATO patrol came under attack in the Zhari district of Kandahar province. One was killed and one was wounded. The wounded child was medically evacuated to an ISAF medical facility, a statement said. Our thoughts and concerns are with the families of this terrible accident, added US Army Colonel Rafael Torres, director of ISAF Joint Command Combined Joint Operations Centre.
