An Afghan soldier has attacked foreign troops at a military base, with a number of US soldiers wounded.
The attack took place at a base in the north of the country on Saturday.
Abdul Qahar Araam, the Afghan Army's 209th Corps spokesman, said the soldier shot four US troops inside the base, news agency Reuters reported.
The US military command, based in the capital Kabul, said they were "aware of an incident" at Camp Shaheen.
A US official later told Reuters the American soldiers were wounded and not killed.
The camp, in the northern city of Mazar-i-Shariff, is the base of the 209th Corps.
