KABULinfo-icon (PANinfo-icon):  An individual wearing an Afghan National Army (ANA) uniform shot dead two International Security Assistance Force (ISAFinfo-icon) soldiers on Thursday, the alliance said.

The shooting took place in eastern Afghanistaninfo-icon, a brief statement from the ISAF media office in Kabul said. In line with its policy, the NATOinfo-icon-led force neither revealed the troops’ nationalities nor the exact location of the incident.

But the Nangarhar governor’s spokesman told reporters in Jalalabad the US soldiers were killed when a protest turned against the alleged desecration of the Quraninfo-icon by US troops turned violent in Khogyani district.

Earlier in the year, an ANA soldier gunned down four French servicemembers in the Tagab district of central Kapisa province.

The incident prompted President Nicholas Sarkozy to announce a suspension of the mission to Afghan security forces and an early withdrawal of French soldiers.
