"An Afghan soldier shot and killed a NATO service member in southern Afghanistan, officials said Wednesday, the latest in a string of similar attacks that has raised concerns about relations between Afghan troops and foreign allies. ... Afghan National Army commander Sayed Malluk confirmed the shooting, which he said happened during a night patrol in Helmand province's Marjah district. But he said the Afghan soldier, who has been in the army for more than two years, told investigators the shooting was an accident." (02/01/12)
