KABUL -- An Afghan man wearing an Afghan army uniform shot at U.S. soldiers in east Afghanistan, killing at least one serviceman today, local officials and the NATO-led coalition said.
The so-called “insider attack” in eastern Paktika province is the fourth in less than a month and is likely to further strain already tense relations between coalition troops and their allies.
According to a Reuters tally, Sunday's incident was the tenth this year, and took the death toll of foreign personnel to 15.
