Afghan 'policeman' kills six Nato troops

A British military policeman trains Afghan policemen on patrolling techniques in Kajaki in March 2006 Attackers in Afghafn police uniform have targeted Nato troops and Afghan security forces before

A gunman in an Afghan police uniform has killed six service members in eastern Afghanistan, NATO forces have said.

NATO says the man turned his weapon on the troops during a training mission. He was also killed in the incident.
It was not immediately clear if the attacker was a real police officer or an insurgent infiltrator.
NATO has not revealed the nationalities of the dead, but Americans make up most of the foreign troops in the area.
"An individual in an Afghan border police uniform turned his weapon against International Security Assistance Forces (Isaf) during a training mission today, killing six service members in eastern Afghanistan," the statement said.
"The individual who fired on the Isaf forces was also killed in the incident. A joint Afghan and Isaf team is investigating this incident."
Taliban insurgents have dressed as police to carry out attacks before now.
Only at the weekend, two suicide bombers in police uniform killed 12 police officers in south-eastern Paktika province.
In November last year, five British soldiers were shot dead in Helmand province, by an Afghan policeman, possibly a militant infiltrator, who then escaped.
