Aussie troops killed by rogue soldier

AUSTRALIA'S Defence Department has confirmed that three Australian soldiers have been killed and seven others wounded by a rogue Afghan soldier in the volatile south of Afghanistan.

The department says an Afghan interpreter was also killed in the incident.

The Australian soldiers wounded are being treated at ISAF medical facilities.

The shooting occurred during a morning parade at 8.30am (1500 AEDT) on Saturday at Shah Wali Kot in Kandahar province, the ABC reported.

NATO says two Australian diggers were killed and the third later died of his injuries after "an individual wearing an Afghan National Army uniform apparently turned his weapon on Afghan and coalition forces".
