CHARIKAR - An Afghan army soldier killed four foreign soldiers in eastern Afghanistan on Friday, said a spokesman for the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF).
An Afghan intelligence security source said four French soldiers were killed and 17 others wounded by an Afghan soldier in the Taghab valley of eastern Kapisa province.
The gunman had been detained, ISAF added.
The shooting is the latest in a series involving western soldiers being killed by members of the Afghan security forces which have undermined trust between Afghan and western troops in the lead-up to the withdrawal of foreign combat troops in 2014.
