KABUL - Two NATO soldiers were shot dead on Thursday by two Afghans, including a man believed to be a soldier, NATO said, an attack that is likely to raise further questions about the future of the country's security forces.

The killings in south Afghanistan came after two senior US officers were gunned down in the heart of Afghanistan's Interior Ministry on Saturday by what Afghan security officials say was a police intelligence official.

That attack raised questions about NATO's strategy of replacing large combat units with advisers as the alliance tries to wind down the war.

NATO immediately moved to withdraw all its advisers from Afghan ministries, followed by Britain, Germany and Canada.
