An Afghan soldier shot dead two US soldiers and injured two others in Afghan capital Kabul, the US-led coalition forces said in a statement on Monday.

The Afghan soldier fired shots into the US soldiers' vehicles when they were leaving the Pul-e-Charkhi prison in Kabul on Sunday, the statement said, adding that two US soldiers were killed and two others injured.

"Other Afghan soldiers - providing external security for the prison - rushed to the aid of the US personnel and fatally shot the rogue soldier," the statement added.
