Officials in southern Afghanistan say a NATO fuel tanker has crashed, killing seven people and injuring three others.

Authorities say the tanker flipped over and ignited into flames Friday in the Panjwayi district. A passing minivan was engulfed in the flames.

Elsewhere in southern Afghanistan, NATO say one of its service members has died in a bomb blast.

The international coalition did not identify the nationality of the service member who died in the explosion Thursday.
