The threat of attacks on USA and coalition troops by Afghan soldiers and police is a persistent worry, although such violence is far less common than several years ago. He is in stable condition, according to a news release from Operation Resolute Support headquarters in Kabul.

The military has identified the US soldier killed in Afghanistan on Monday as Army Command Sgt. Maj.

A USA soldier killed in eastern Afghanistan in an apparent insider attack has been identified as Army Command Sergeant Major Timothy Bolyard, the Pentagon said on Tuesday. That incident, the sixth U.S. casualty in Afghanistan this year, followed another insider attack in July that claimed the life of 20-year-old Army Cpl.

An "insider attack" is one carried out against US military personnel by the Afghan troops they are training or advising.
