KABUL, March 13 (RIA Novosti) - A roadside bomb killed one and wounded three NATO soldiers in the Daykundi province in central Afghanistan, the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) reported on Sunday.

The nationality of the soldier killed in the bombing and the three other soldiers who were wounded, and also the exact area of the incident were not specified.

At the same time, the province's governor, Qurban Ali Oruzgani, told the media that the blast occurred in the Kajran district when a military motorcycle hit a roadside bomb.

Since the beginning of this year, a total of 80 international forces have been killed in Afghanistan compared to 711 servicemen killed in the entire year 2010.

Violence has surged in Afghanistan in recent months, with the Taliban group, which was toppled in a 2001 U.S.-led campaign, staging regular attacks on provincial government officials, police and civilians and planting roadside bombs to target Afghan, U.S. and NATO troops.
