'Rogue policeman' kills Nato soldiers

Six Nato troops were shot dead by a man wearing an Afghan border police uniform during a training exercise in Nangarhar province in the east of the country yesterday. Most Nato troops in that area are American.

The incident appeared to be the latest in a run of attacks by renegade police and soldiers, underlining the pressure on Nato-led troops as they try to train Afghan forces for a handover of security from next year.

But officials were unable to confirm whether the gunman was a member of the border police or an infiltrator.
