    Two NATO soldiers and an interpreter have been killed in Afghanistan during a patrol, NATO says.

    Another soldier and two journalists were injured in the same incident, which occurred in southern Afghanistan.

    The incident "puts into context the very real dangers, difficulties and life threatening situations our ISAF troops, media and the interpreters who accompany them, encounter on a daily basis," said Lt. Col. Bridget Rose, a spokeswoman for the International Security Assistance Force's Regional Command South.

    "Our thoughts are with the friends and families of those who have died or been injured in this incident."

    An exact location hasn't been given yet for the incident.

    No identities or nationalities have been released yet; however, that information usually comes from officials of the country whose soldiers were affected.

    For what is it to die,
    But to stand in the sun and melt into the wind?
