Afghan soldier kills two US troops

An Afghan soldier has killed two American service members in Afghanistan, according to US officials.

The US Central Command confirmed that two US troops were killed, but provided no details. It said additional information was being withheld until 24 hours after notification of next of kin was complete.

Attacks on US and Afghan forces have intensified in the run-up to presidential elections and violence marred the start of the campaign on the weekend, after President Ashraf Ghani insisted “peace is coming” to the war-torn nation.
