KABUL: NATO says an Afghan soldier tried to gun down a group of international troops in the country's east but was killed as NATO forces fired back.
A NATO spokesman says Thursday's attack happened outside a "coordination center" for Afghan and international forces in Laghman province. German Lt. Col. Hagen Messer says no one was killed in the incident.
Messer declined to give more details, saying only that NATO and Afghan forces need to investigate the attack. He also declined to say if anyone was wounded.
The incident was the latest in a growing number of the so-called "green-on-blue" attacks in which Afghan soldiers or police have turned on their international colleagues. Some of the attackers have been insurgent infiltrators, while others have been trying to settle personal vendettas.
