2 U.S. Troops Killed in Afghanistan

Two American soldiers were killed by their ostensible comrades this Friday, just one day after seven Americans were killed in a helicopter crash. According to NATO, the two soldiers were shot by a newly recruited Afghan policeman, who was also shot and killed. Meanwhile, in Kandahar, an Afghan gunman shot and wounded three other soldiers before being taken into custody. Afghan military and police partners have attacked American and international soldiers 31 times this year, killing 23 Americans.
