Suspected rogue Afghan soldier kills 2 NATO soldiers

KABUL | Mon Mar 26, 2012 4:41am EDT

(Reuters) - A gunman wearing an Afghan army uniform killed two NATO troops in southern Afghanistan on Monday, NATO's International Security Assistance Force said, in what appeared to be the latest attack by rogue Afghan security forces on Western troops.

The attacker was shot dead by NATO force soldiers, the force said in a statement. It did not identify the two NATO soldiers or give their nationality.

The incident took place in Lashkar Gah in the southern Helmand province, an Afghan security source said.

So-called insider attacks have mounted in recent months as tension between Afghanistan and its foreign backers rises over a series of incidents including the burning of Korans at a NATO base and the killing of 17 villagers in southern Kandahar for which a U.S. soldier has been charged.
