HERAT: Two Afghan soldiers attacked US-led NATO forces – ISAF- in western Afghanistan on Saturday, in the latest 'insider' attack in the country, injuring one foreign soldier, ISAF said.
An ISAF spokesman in Kabul said that the attack by two Afghan National Army (ANA) soldiers occurred in Muqur district of Badghis province in the early hours of Saturday, which resulted in the injury of one NATO soldier and one attacker but no fatalities.
"Two ANA service members turned their weapons against the ISAF forces in Badghis province. There were no fatalities, but one ISAf soldier was injured and one attacker was also when the ISAF troops returned fire. Both attackers were detained by the ISAF and Afghan forces," the spokesman said without giving more details.
A provincial spokesman confirmed the incident but said that only one attacker, an ANA soldier who "was suffering from mental problems", was involved.
