NATO said coalition troops shot and killed an Afghan man south of Kabul who approached them in a vehicle at high speed while they were on foot patrol. The statement said that troops tried to get the driver to stop the vehicle Tuesday using hand signals and several warning shots, but he failed to respond. NATO said that the incident occurred north of Puli Alam, the capital of Logar province. Afghan police transported the driver to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
