iStockphoto/Thinkstock(LONDON) — A man believed to be a member of the Afghan local police shot dead two NATO troops in southern Afghanistan. NATO said the gunman was also killed.

So far this year 47 international service members have died at the hands of the Afghans they trained and worked with. A surge in so called insider attacks last month has led to a suspension in recruitment and a review of the vetting procedures.
