Sun Feb 9th, 2020 - Imo

Two American troops were killed and six others wounded by an Afghan soldier armed with a machine gun, the US military confirmed Sunday.

The deaths come at a sensitive time in the 18-year-old war, with President Donald Trump eager to bring troops home and end the longest conflict in US history.

The incident occurred late Saturday at a base in Sherzad district, in Nangarhar province, eastern Afghanistan.
