A pair of men clad in Afghan security force uniforms shot and killed two NATO troops at a military base in southern Afghanistan on Wednesday, according to officials.

The New York Times reported that the shooting occurred at a base in the Helmand province in Afghanistan, areas of which have recently been seized by Taliban insurgents.

According to a U.S. official, the two NATO soldiers killed in the shooting were U.S. forces. NATO explained in a statement that two men wearing “Afghan National Defense and Security Forces uniforms” fired at a vehicle in which international soldiers were riding, after which the NATO troops returned fire and killed both gunmen.
