Officials say two separate bombings in Afghanistan have killed a NATO service member and a local official with the Afghan Ministry of Women's Affairs and her husband.

NATO says the service member was killed by a roadside bomb in the south. No other details were released.

Sarhadi Zwak, a spokesman in eastern Laghman province, says the local official, Anifa Safi, and her husband were killed when a bomb that was hidden in their car exploded in the provincial capital of Mehterlam.

No one immediately claimed responsibility for the Friday morning attacks, but they matched the pattern of Taliban assaults that typically target Afghan government officials and Afghan and foreign forces.
