    BREAKING NEWS

    Three US soldiers have been shot and killed by an Afghan in uniform in southern Helmand province, according to a Nato spokeswoman.

    "All we know is that they were killed by an Afghan in a uniform of some sort," the spokeswoman said.

    Afghan officials said the three men were all special forces members and were killed while attending a meeting in Sangin District on Thursday.

    The local ANP chief, apparently.

    Makes a nonsense of the statement, prevalent until recently, that the SF never suffered from Green-on-Blue as they were more 'culturally aware' of the Afghan ways, and that they worked more closely with them. The ANSF knows well that ISAF is on the way out - SF and others - and they are thinking of their future, for which you can't really blame them.
