Afghan Policeman Opens Fire on NATO Forces: 5th Green on Blue Incident in a Week

The new U.S. ambassador to Afghanistan called a sudden rash of attacks on international forces by their Afghan partners “troubling” Monday, after an Afghan policeman opened fire on NATO forces in the fifth such assault in a week.

No international service members were killed in the latest attack. A Taliban spokesman claimed responsibility for the shooting in the eastern province of Nangarhar, claiming the attacker was a police officer who had been in contact with insurgents before the assault.
