Two Nato soldiers have reportedly been killed in a shooting at the Afghan Interior Ministry in Kabul - as more die in a fifth day of violent mass protests over the burning of Korans at a Nato base.
The heavily barricaded ministry in the centre of the Afghan capital has been sealed off with reports that the victims were a US military Colonel and Major.
A Nato statement said: "Initial reports indicate an individual turned his weapon against International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) service members in Kabul City today, killing two service members."
The Interior Ministry confirmed: "two of our international colleagues were killed inside the compound of the interior ministry. The ministry is investigating."
