Two American soldiers were killed by a man in an Afghan police uniform on Thursday, the US military said, the latest in a series of insider attacks.

“Two US Forces-Afghanistan service members died after an individual wearing an Afghan National Police uniform turned his weapon against them in Khas Uruzgan, Uruzgan,” said US Forces Afghanistan, part of NATO’s International Security Assistance Force (ISAF).
