ISAF Member Killed In Insider Attack In Afghanistan

A man in the uniform of an Afghan soldier shot and killed a member of the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force in eastern Afghanistan on Sunday, ISAF reported.

The killing, which was still under investigation Sunday afternoon, follows a long series of "insider" attacks by Afghan troops or infiltrators on U.S. and allied troops, including one in September that killed three Americans in eastern Afghanistan.

So-called "green on blue" attacks killed dozens of coalition troops in 2012, prompting the U.S. command in Kabul to stop some joint operations with Afghan security forces.
