WASHINGTON: Two US service members were killed and six others injured when an individual in an Afghan uniform opened fire on them, the US military said on Saturday.
The incident, which took place in Nangarhar province, occurred after a combined US and Afghan force was returning from a “key-leader engagement,” Colonel Sonny Leggett, a spokesman for US forces in Afghanistan, said in a statement.
