NATO Troops Killed By Afghan "Policeman"

There has been another incident in which NATO troops have been attacked and killed by a "friendly".
NATO forces say a gunman in an Afghan police uniform has killed six service members in eastern Afghanistan.

NATO said the shooter turned his weapon on NATO troops during a training mission on Monday. He was also killed in the incident.

It was not immediately clear if the shooter was a police officer or someone who had infiltrated the training exercise. Insurgents commonly wear police uniforms to attack Afghan government installations.

NATO said it is investigating the incident along with Afghan authorities. The nationalities of the NATO service members has not been released.
