    Insurgents Wore U.S. Army Uniforms

Two NATO soldiers were shot dead today by a man believed to be a member of a controversial Afghan police force in southern Afghanistan, the US-led military said. The attack means that so far this year, Afghan security personnel have shot dead at least 47 NATO soldiers, the majority of them American, threatening to jeopardise Western plans to train Afghan forces to take over when they leave in 2014.

    The Afghan insurgents who attacked Camp Bastion in Afghanistan on Friday were wearing U.S. Army uniforms. They were also carrying automatic rifles, rocket-propelled grenade launchers, and suicide vests. The attack killed two U.S. Marines, destroyed six jets, and caused considerable damage. Fourteen of the fifteen attackers were killed, and the Taliban said the attack was a response to an anti-Islam film. Officials would not say how the attackers obtained the U.S. uniforms, but such uniforms are reportedly sold in markets in Afghanistan. The last time insurgents used American uniforms was in August 2010, when insurgents attacked two bases in the Khost province.
