NATO: 2 troops killed in southern Afghanistan

NATO says two of its troops have been killed in southern Afghanistan.
The military alliance says in a statement the troops were killed Wednesday in a "hostile incident." It did not provide details on their nationalities or say how they were killed.
Southern Afghanistan is the center of the Taliban-led insurgency, where thousands more U.S. troops will join the fight later this year.
More than 6,400 people _ mostly militants _ were killed in 2008, according to an Associated Press count of figures released by Afghan and Western officials.
