Two NATO Soldiers Killed In Afghanistan

At least two NATO soldiers, both reportedly Romanian, have been killed, and another wounded, following an attack by gunmen, wearing security forces uniforms, in Afghanistan.

Two NATO soldiers have been killed in the south of Afghanistan and a third was wounded when two attackers wearing the uniform of Afghan security forces opened fire on them, NATO has said.

Romanian defence ministry officials are reported to have said those killed were members of the Romanian special forces. The troops were shot while training police in the city of Kandahar.

There have been several incidents in recent years of Afghan security forces turning their arms on coalition troops.

However more recently so-called “green-on-blue” insider attacks – usually committed by Taliban members or supporters – have become much less frequent.
