KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The US military has blamed an Afghan policeman for the latest insider attack that killed one American soldier in eastern Afghanistaninfo-icon.

One US service member was killed and another wounded, said Lt. Col. Martin O'Donnell, a spokesman for the US-led coalition, in a statement on Tuesday.

The killer fled scene after the attack but was later apprehended by Afghans. The rogue police official is currently in custody. The soldier who died was the sixth American to be killed in Afghanistan this year.

The wounds sustained by the second US service member were not life-threatening, the spokesman said. Another US service member died in a noncombat-related incident in the east on Tuesday.
