NATO says a rogue Afghan soldier shot and lightly wounded a Polish soldier.

A spokesman said the Afghan soldier ran off after opening fire on Saturday night and was being sought by Afghan and international forces. The spokesman spoke on Sunday on condition of anonymity as is routine.

The spokesman said the wounded Pole was moved to a medical facility for treatment.

The shooting took place at a joint command center in the eastern province of Ghazni, the central base area for the 2,600 Polish troops in Afghanistan.
