Afghan soldiers kills two more ISAF troops…?
Not looking good – just seen this from the BBC. Until there is confirmation that it was definitely a member of the Afghan armed forces, NATO is playing it carefully by describing the attacker as “a man in Afghan uniform”. There have been several instances of insurgents wearing uniforms.
Nato troops killed by a man dressed in Afghan army uniform
A man wearing an Afghan army uniform has shot and killed two international service members, according to Nato.
The attack happened at a military base in the south of the country, a statement by the International Security Assistance Force (Isaf) said.
The attacker was killed by coalition troops, Isaf said. The nationalities of the soldiers have not been released.
The incident comes after several Afghan civilians were killed in an attack for which a US soldier has been charged.
An official in the Afghan defence ministry has told the BBC that the attack happened in Helmand province, and that the attacker was an Afghan soldier.
