Afghanistan: One U.S. service member was killed in Afghanistan Tuesday, U.S. officials said in a short press release.

NATO’s Resolute Support mission to train and advise Afghan government forces said that the incident is under investigation.

“In accordance with U.S. Department of Defense policy, the name of the service member killed in action is being withheld until 24 hours after notification of next of kin is complete,” the press release reads. “We will share additional information as appropriate.”

The latest death comes less than a week after Sgt. Cameron Meddock, an Army Ranger, died from wounds he suffered while conducting combat operations in Afghanistan’s Badghis province, and while the Taliban are holding another round of peace talks with an American diplomatic team in Doha, Qatar.
