NATO Soldier Killed by Attacker in Afghan Army Uniform

NATO says a man dressed in an Afghan National Army uniform opened fire on coalition soldiers, leaving one dead.

The NATO statement says coalition forces returned fire killing the shooter Sunday in southern Afghanistan.

The shooting is the latest in a series of deadly attacks on international troops by gunmen wearing Afghan uniforms.

In other violence, NATO says one of its service members died in a bomb explosion in eastern Afghanistan Sunday. No details on the attack were released.

Elsewhere in the country, two Taliban commanders and three insurgents were killed in fighting Friday with security forces. A NATO statement says one of the men was a senior Taliban commander who planned and organized roadside bombings and other attacks against Afghan and coalition forces throughout Faryab province.

The other, a subordinate commander, was a Taliban judge who attempted to impose Taliban law and punishment on civilians in the area.

Some information for this report was provided by AP, AFP and Reuters.

every-one around the world must know that one day we youth boys will write all fatalities & sacrifices of NATO, ISAF & America soldiers in a narrative, novel & history books like the books has written about poets, heros of our past against Britains, Russia, AL-Qaeda & Taliban. it's no matter if Taliban brother (Karzai or specific tribe) never remind about Fatalities & Sacrifices of Int'l or Nation soldiers but we do & it could be our tasks & duties to remind all these things.

i think it is the result of asigned strategic partnership without focusing on Taliban obsolve from the area in the strategic partnership only Karzai concerned on AL-Qaeda not on his brothers who are Taliabn. so Taliban groups misuse from smile of Obama & crying of Pakistani Karzai in both-sides NATO, ISAF & America soldiers are burning but in Green-house Karzai smoking hashish
