A NATO soldier died in southern Afghanistan on Monday, the military alliance confirmed in a press release issued here, Xinhua reported.
"An International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) service member died as a result of a non-battle related injury in southern Afghanistan today," the NATO-led ISAF said in the press release.
The brief release gave neither the nationality of the victim nor the details about the incident under the ISAF policy.
Troops mainly from U.S., Britain and Australia have been stationed in the southern region within the framework of the ISAF to curb Taliban-linked insurgency there.
The Taliban insurgent group, which has been waging an insurgency of more than one decade, launched in May this year spring offensive against the Afghan and NATO forces.
More than 373 foreign soldiers, most of them Americans, have been killed in Afghanistan since the beginning of this year.
