Man in Afghan army uniform wounds five Nato soldiers

An individual wearing Afghan army uniform shot and wounded five Nato soldiers in eastern Afghanistan on Tuesday, the alliance says.

The five, believed to be American, are receiving medical treatment. The extent of their injuries is not known.

The attack took place at a Nato base in Wardak province, east of Kabul.
