An Afghan soldier opened fire on NATO troops in the south of the country on Monday morning, killing two soldiers, local media reported.
The incident occurred at a military base in Lashkar Gah, the capital of Helmand province.
“The gunman was shot and killed,” Al Jazeera reported, quoting NATO spokesman Major Jason Waggoner. He declined to provide further details.
Twenty soldiers from coalition forces in Afghanistan have been killed by Taliban sympathisers in the Afghan National Army and police since 2002.
