A United States service member was killed Tuesday by an improvised explosive device in Afghanistan's Helmand province.

Officials have not yet identified the service member, pending notification to the family.

NATO coalition authorities say the service member was part of the existing 500 troops already in the Helmand province working to do counter terrorism training and advise missions.

One other US service member and six Afghan soldiers were injured in the blast.
