"This is a terrible loss for those families and the friends of those fallen soldiers," Windsor said. "These soldiers came to Afghanistan to bring peace, security, and stability to this country and the people of Afghanistan."

ISAF policy prohibits releasing the nationalities of any casualties prior to the home countries doing so, CNN said.
