U.S. soldiers injured in incident at Afghan military camp

Several U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan were wounded Saturday when an Afghan comrade opened fire on them - the second insider attack on American troops in a week.

A spokesman for the USA military command, based in Kabul, dismissed reports that American soldiers had been killed.

According to Afghan news agency Pajhwok Afghan News, four North Atlantic Treaty Organisation soldiers were killed in attack by an Afghan soldier in northern Balkh province and details were awaited.

The statement further added "At this time we can confirm there are no U.S. or NATO Resolute Support fatalities".

At least one Afghan soldier was killed and another wounded, the US official said.

Last week three US soldiers were killed by an Afghan soldier in eastern Nangarhar province.

Abdul Qahar Araam, spokesman for the Afghan Army's 209th Corps, said earlier that the Americans were fatally shot.
