British Soldier, Afghan Killed in Apparent Insider Attack

In news from Afghanistan, a British soldier has been shot dead in an apparent insider attack by an individual wearing an Afghan army uniform. International forces returned fire, killing a member of the Afghan army, though it was unclear whether the man they killed was the original shooter. The incident followed an attack by two Afghan soldiers on Saturday that injured a Spanish servicemember. More than 60 soldiers with the U.S.-led NATO coalition have been killed so far this year in a surge of attacks by Afghan colleagues.
