Possible ‘Insider’ Attack Kills 5

Five people were killed in Afghanistan on Saturday in what may have been another “insider” attack - bringing the total number of U.S. military depths in the country to 2,000. Two Americans and three Afghans are thought to have been killed in the firefight, though few details were available early on Sunday. The incident appears to have occurred after a disagreement of some sort broke out at an Afghan National Army checkpoint. If the altercation was an attack on NATO forces by Afghan soldiers who were militants wearing army uniforms, it would bring the total number of coalition deaths in such attacks this year to 53.
