A firefight erupted Wednesday between US and Afghan security forces in eastern Afghanistan, killing one NATO soldier in an apparent insider attack, officials said.
"The incident took place after a senior US official held a meeting with the provincial governor (in Jalalabad)," US embassy spokeswoman Monica Cummings said in a statement.
"An incident in Jalalabad today resulted in the death of one Resolute Support service member," said a brief statement from Resolute Support, the new name for the NATO mission in Afghanistan.
