Kabul: Officials say an Afghan police officer opened fire inside a police station while US forces were visiting, sparking a firefight that killed two US troops and three Afghan policemen.

Monday`s incident in Wardak province appears to be the latest in a series of insider attacks against coalition and Afghan forces.

It comes a day after a deadline given by Afghans for US special forces to withdraw from the province.

Deputy provincial Police Chief Abdul Razaq Koraishi says three Afghan officers were killed. A coalition military official says two US forces were killed.
