2 US Troops Killed By Shooter Ďin Afghan Uniformí: US

On Saturday, a firefight broke out in Sherzad district, Nangarhar province, said a US forces spokesman, Col. Sonny Leggett, who confirmed that two US service members were killed and six others were wounded, and that wounded service members were receiving medical treatment at a US facility.

The US spokespersonís statement read: "Upon completing a key-leader engagement at the district center, current reports indicate an individual in an Afghan uniform opened fire on the combined U.S. and Afghan force with a machine gun."

The governor in Nangarhar, Shah Mahmood Miakhel, posted a statement of Facebook saying: "(Afghan) Army Special Forces and Resolute Support troops entered into the district. When they entered someone started shooting at them--an army soldier started shooting at them. He was killed in response. Three (Afghan) commandos were injured in the shooting. And a number of RS (Resolute Support) troops were also wounded."

Miakhel continued: "There was an operation ongoing. An investigation is being conducted. We still donít know if he was an "influenced" person or if it was a mistake. Security officials have been sent to the area to investigate and soon we will share the details."

US Col Leggett said: "We are still collecting information and the cause or motive behind the attack is unknown at this time. The incident is under investigation," adding: "In accordance with US Department of Defense policy, the names of the service members killed in action will be withheld until 24 hours after notification of next of kin is complete."
