NATO-led forces in Afghanistan say one of their service members and a civilian contractor have died after a suspected insider attack.

The international coalition says the Afghan National Army also suffered casualties in the attack Saturday in eastern Afghanistan.

The coalition did not say who carried out the insider attack – a term used to indicate a member of some Afghan security force turned on coalition forces. An investigation is under way.

More than 50 international troops have been killed this year in a series of insider attacks.
