Policeman who shot US troops killed in Faryab
Disguised in a border police uniform, the man shot dead the Americans inside a police training centre in Maimana city, the provincial capital, on Monday.
The two soldiers were among six others holding talks with Afghan security officials when attacked.
ISAF's media office in Kabul in a statement said the attacker was killed in an operation involving Afghan and international forces in Maimana with the help of intelligence tip-offs. The force did not reveal the exact location of the operation.
Police spokesman, Lal Mohammad Ahmadzai, said ISAF forces attacked a house on the outskirt of Maimana city and killed the policeman. ISAF forces searched the house, arrested two people and recovered a pistol with magazines from the house.
A senior intelligence official told the Parliament on Wednesday that efforts were in place to identify militants who had infiltrated Afghan police and army.
