KABUL - An agent from Afghanistan's intelligence unit opened fire at a foreign base on Saturday, killing two soldiers from the NATO-led coalition and wounding a third, the police chief of normally peaceful northern Panjshir province said.

"He had a pistol, opened fire and killed two soldiers from the PRT (provincial reconstruction team). He injured a third who opened fire and killed the NDS (National Directorate of Security) agent," police chief General Qaseem Junglebagh told Reuters.

The NATO-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) confirmed there had been a shooting in Panjshir that caused "a number of ISAF casualties" but declined to comment further.
