A gunman in an Afghan police uniform has killed six service members in eastern Afghanistan, Nato forces say.
The man opened fire during a training mission in Pachir Wagam district, Nangarhar province, said Nato. He was also killed in the incident.
Local officials said they believed the incident was not premeditated, but had arisen out of "a misunderstanding".
Nato has not revealed the nationalities of the dead soldiers, but local sources said they were American.
"An individual in an Afghan border police uniform turned his weapon against International Security Assistance Forces (Isaf) during a training mission today, killing six service members in eastern Afghanistan," Monday's statement said.

Still, we shouldn't be too harsh - perhaps the killer misinterpreted the Koran? Apparently it does happen.
