Two American service personnel were killed on Monday 11th March when an Afghan National Army soldier opened fire during a joint briefing at a Special Forces operating base in Wardak province. Several others were injured in the attack. Three Afghans were also killed.
The incident comes at a time when the US-Afghan relationship becomes more tense following allegations by Afghan President Karzai accusing US Special Forces of using torture in Wardak province; an allegation that the US strongly denies.
The victims in the latest insider attack are yet to be identified.
