Several Afghan and US-led coalition service members were killed Monday in an apparent insider attack in eastern Afghanistan, the NATO force said.

"Today one or several individuals wearing an ANSF (Afghan National Security Force) uniform turned his or their weapon at a group of Afghan... and coalition service members and killed several on both sides," a NATO spokesman told AFP.

The spokesman did not give details but a government spokesman in Wardak province, southeast of Kabul, told AFP the incident had happened there and authorities were investigating.
