KABUL — Five U.S. troops were wounded Tuesday in the second incident of Afghan security forces turning their weapons on their coalition counterparts in three days.
An Afghan National Army soldier shot the U.S. troops in the early evening at a military outpost in the Sayed Abad district of Wardak province, in eastern Afghanistan, according to officials with the International Security Assistance Force. The five troops were medically evacuated and are being treated at an ISAF hospital, though officials would not disclose the severity of their injuries. The shooter escaped.
On Sunday, an Afghan policeman shot and killed three British soldiers at a checkpoint in Helmand province.
