An Afghan soldier shot and killed two Nato soldiers in eastern Nangarhar province on Thursday, a source told TOLOnews.

"An Afghan soldier turned his weapon against foreign troops in the Khogyani district of Nangahar province today. He opened fire on Nato troops, killing two and wounding two others," the source told TOLOnews on the condition of anonymity.

Meanwhile, an Isaf statement confirmed that a individual wearing an Afghan army uniform opened fire on Nato troops, killing two soldiers.

Isaf did not provide more details about the incident.


ISAF did not identify the nationalities of the dead soldiers and gave no further details of the incident, which came on the third day of fierce protests against the burning of the Holy Quran at a US-run military base.

Asked whether the events were connected, an ISAF spokesman would only say: "There was a demonstration in the province."
