    Two Nato soldiers killed in 'green-on-blue' attack in Afghanistan

    May 8, Kabul: Two Nato soldiers have been killed in southern part of Afghanistan and a third was wounded when two attackers wearing the uniform of Afghan security forces opened fire on them, according to Nato.

    Those killed were members of the Romanian Special Forces, Romanian defence ministry officials reported.

    The troops were shot while training police in the city of Kandahar. The attackers on Saturday were killed after carrying out their attack, a Nato statement said, and an investigation is underway.

    There have been several incidents in recent years of Afghan security forces turning their arms on coalition troops.

    However more recently so-called "green-on-blue" insider attacks - usually committed by Taliban members or supporters - have become much less frequent, reports said.

    One Afghan policeman is reported to have been been arrested and is being questioned.
