Nato said on Saturday that three international troops had been killed in a shooting in Afghanistan.
“Three International Security Assistance Force [ISAF] service members died when an individual wearing an Afghan National Security Forces uniform shot them in eastern Afghanistan today,” the Nato-led coalition said in a statement.
An Afghan official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the three soldiers killed were special forces, though he declined to provide their nationality. US forces provide the bulk of ISAF troops in the east. The attack was the seventh reported insider attack this year; 12 ISAF personnel have been killed.
