A man wearing an Afghan police uniform has killed two Nato service members in southern Afghanistan, according to the international military coalition.
The attack on Tuesday appeared to be the latest in a string of "green on blue" incidents that have placed severe strains on the partnership between international troops and the Afghan forces they are trying to train to take over responsibility for the country's security.
There have also been cases of insurgents wearing Afghan uniforms when they carry out attacks.
The Nato statement gave no further details, saying the shooting was still under investigation.
At least 53 international troops have been killed in confirmed attacks by Afghan soldiers or police this year, and a number of other assaults are still under investigation.
