KANDAHAR CITY (PANinfo-icon): An Afghan soldier shot dead two International Security Assistance Force (ISAFinfo-icon) soldiers and one of their interpreters in central Uruzgan province on Saturday, an official said.

The shooting happened during a training session in Tirinkot, the provincial capital, Brig. Gen. Abdul Hamid Hamid, a Kandahar-based commander of the 205th Atal Military Corps, told Pajhwok Afghan News.

One Afghan National Army (ANA) officer was also killed in the incident before noon, according to Gen. Hamid, who said that another six international servicemembers were wounded.

"An individual in Afghan National Army (ANA) uniform apparently turned his weapon on Afghan and coalition forces," an ISAF statement said, adding the shooter was also killed during the incident.

Since the beginning of the current year, 499 foreign soldiers have been killed in the country, where the NATOinfo-icon-led force lost 711 soldiers in 2010. Mostly, Australian troops are stationed in Uruzgan.
