July 13 (UPI) -- A U.S. soldier was killed "in action" Saturday in Afghanistan, the NATO-led security alliance said.
The NATO-led Resolute Support said it would not release the name of the soldier or give further details until 24 hours after giving notification of the death to the soldier's family.
The death will bring the total number of deaths among U.S. military in Afghanistan this year to 11, a website that tracks casualties of U.S. forces, iCasualties, shows.
Over 2,400 U.S. service members have died since the war started in 2001, after the 9/11 attacks.

Among the points, the two groups agreed the country would be "united" and "Islamic" and one that sets aside "all ethnic differences."
U.S. Special Rep. Zalmay Khalilzad said the talks were critical and tweeted ahead of the talks that "the most productive session to date" in dialogue about peace process had been in the last six days.
