Afghan soldier kills three British soldiers: Kabul
An Afghan soldier killed three British soldiers in southern Afghanistan on Tuesday, said a defence ministry spokesman in Kabul.
"We confirm that an Afghan army solider has opened fire and killed three British soldiers," Mohammad Zahir Azimi told AFP.
He gave no immediate further details, but said the ministry would soon release a statement.
The US-led NATO force in Afghanistan earlier announced that three foreign soldiers had been killed in an "attack" in southern Afghanistan but gave no further details nor their nationalities.
