Two NATO troops killed by Afghan policeman

Tuesday 30th October: A man wearing an Afghan police uniform killed two NATO troops in southern Afghanistan today.

The killing is the latest in a string of insider attacks that have threatened to sever the partnership between international troops and the Afghan forces they are trying to train.

At least 53 NATO troops have been killed in attacks by Afghan soldiers or police this year, and a number of other assaults are still under investigation, the international alliance has said.

Latest: the two are confirmed to be British troops serving with the Royal Gurkha Rifles.

More information to follow.
