U.S. Soldier Killed in Afghanistan Attack, U.S. Forces Say

(Bloomberg) -- An American soldier was killed on Monday and another wounded in an “apparent insider attack” in eastern Afghanistan, the U.S. forces in the country says in a statement.

The demise is a “tragic loss”, said U.S. and coalition forces commander General Scott Miller, who assumed command of the forces on Sunday from former U.S. Commander John Nicholson. The soldier is the sixth American killed in the country this year, according to the statement.
