3 US soldiers wounded in Afghan insider attack

IANS  |  Washington 

Three US soldiers were wounded after an soldier opened fire at them inside an base, the NATO-led Resolute Support said on Sunday.

According to local media report, the soldier was shot dead after attacking the US soldiers.

Known also as "green-on-blue" attack, the insider attack, where an soldier or police fires on coalition forces, is one of the major problems facing coalition forces there.

Last May, two Romanian soldiers were shot dead while training police.

Currently, around 13,000 foreign troops still remain in to train and assist local security forces in their fight against Taliban.
