KABUL, Afghanistan (CNN) – Three NATO service members were killed Saturday during attacks in Afghanistan, while a fourth died of noncombat-related injuries, according to the International Security Assistance Force.

A roadside bomb took the life of one service member in the southern part of the country, while two others were killed in the same region when two attackers wearing Afghan Police uniforms turned their weapons on NATO troops.

One of the attackers was killed when NATO forces returned fire, but the other managed to escape and is currently being sought after, ISAF reported.

It’s not clear whether the attackers were insurgents or Afghan police, said ISAF spokesman Jimmie Cummings.
