FOX News: 3 US soldiers shot in Afghanistan 'insider attack'
Three U.S. Army soldiers were shot and wounded Sunday when an Afghan Army soldier opened fire on them inside a base in southern Afghanistan's volatile Helmand Province, officials told Fox News.
The attack occurred around 1:30 p.m. local time at Camp Antonik in Washer District in Helmand.
"Coalition security forces on the base killed the soldier to end the attack," Capt. Bill Salvin, spokesman for U.S. Forces in Afghanistan, told Fox News. "The U.S. soldiers are receiving medical treatment at this time and we will release more information when available."
The severity of the soldiers wounds was not immediately clear. Salvin declined to offer more details.
There are roughly 8,400 U.S. troops on the ground in Afghanistan -- more than in Iraq and Syria combined.
