Afghan policeman kills two foreign soldiers: officials

MAZAR-I-SHARIF, Afghanistan (Reuters) - An Afghan border policeman shot dead two foreign soldiers from the NATO-led coalition on Monday who were on a training mission, said the deputy governor of northern Faryab province where the shooting took place.

The International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) said it was investigating the deaths of two soldiers who were killed inside a base.

"According to initial reporting, an individual in an Afghan Border Police uniform fired on the ISAF members inside a compound. The individual who fired the shots fled the scene," an ISAF statement said.
