KABUL, Afghanistan, July 28 (UPI) -- Two NATO troops were killed Saturday by insurgents in Afghanistan, bringing the number of international forces killed there in July to 42, officials said.

The troops were killed in eastern Afghanistan, Khaama News reported.

"Two International Security Assistance Force service members died following an insurgent attack in eastern Afghanistan today," the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force said.

No further information was given on the incident.

NATO also said Saturday a combined Afghan-NATO security force killed a man believed to be supplying the Taliban with money, weapons and explosives, the Los Angeles Times reported.

The man, Maulawi Abdul Rahman, was sought out and killed in the northern Balkh province after he threatened NATO forces.
