NATO says a roadside bombing killed three troops with the U.S.-led coalition in eastern Afghanistan.

The coalition recently shifted its focus from southern Afghanistan to the east, where militants are fighting Afghan and coalition troops along Pakistan border.

The exact location of the bombing was not disclosed.

So far this year, 519 NATO service members have been killed in Afghanistan, including at least 389 Americans.
