Two U.S. service members have been killed and at least 10 wounded in shooting by a uniformed Afghan gunman, a U.S. military official says.
The attack happened late Monday morning in eastern Afghanistan, said Maj. Adam Wojack, a spokesman for the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force.
A spokesman for the Taliban, the militant group that once ruled Afghanistan, said an Afghan police officer opened fire on both U.S. and Afghan troops in the Jalrez district of Wardak province, about an hour west of Kabul.
The incident appeared to be the latest "green-on-blue" attack, or strike against coalition members by people dressed in police or army uniforms. Assailants using similar tactics killed dozens of coalition troops in 2012.
