KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — A man in an Afghan national security forces uniform killed a NATO service member Sunday in eastern Afghan-istan, the international military coalition said.

The alliance did not provide other details nor the nationality of the soldier but said an investigation has been launched into the shooting.

Most of the foreign forces serving in the east are from the United States.

At least 15 foreign soldiers have been killed this year in so-called insider attacks, compared to a total of 62 last year.

A total of 133 coalition soldiers have been killed so far this year, including 104 Americans.
