BREAKING-Four NATO soldiers ( reportedly Americans ) killed in Afghan 'insider' attack
Four soldiers fighting with the NATO -led alliance were killed in an apparent insider shooting in southern Afghanistan on Sunday. Local authorities told NBC News that the victims Americans, but NATO would not confirm the reports.
The shooting took place in Zabol, a southern province where U.S. forces are based, and came a day after two British soldiers were shot dead by an Afghan policeman while returning from a patrol in southern Helmand province - a stronghold of the Taliban-led insurgency.
Local authorities told NBC News that the four killed were Americans. Jeremy Kelly, a Kabul-based reporter for UK newspaper The Times, also posted on Twitter that the victims were U.S. soldiers - citing a provincial official.

 Quoting: taniatarn


I really dont get a good feeling for the soldiers currently in the Middle East.

'At least 51 foreign military personnel have been killed in "insider" attacks this year, attacks which have put a heavy strain on trust between the coalition and Afghanistan as they move towards handing security responsibility to Afghan forces by the end of 2014.
The rise in such attacks has led to the training of new recruits to the Afghan army and police being suspended.'

I can only see this escalating rapidly given current events..

The Nato soldiers were killed as they tried to stop an insurgent attack on a police checkpoint in Mezan, a remote area of Zabul near the border with Pakistan, said Zabul deputy police chief Ghulam Jelani Farahiof.

They were killed by a man in an Afghan national police uniform, he said.

An Afghan report that they were members of the special forces has been denied by Nato.

Their nationality has not been released but they were not from the UK contingent.


Senior Afghan officials said one suspected policeman had died in the attack and five had gone missing since. It was not clear whether the five were involved in the attack or had fled fearing they would be held responsible.

Soldiers die, it's kind of what they signed up to do unless they seriously bought the "money for university" carrot.
