May 7 (Reuters) - A rogue Afghan army soldier shot dead two U.S. soldiers at the high-security Pul-i-Charkhi prison on the eastern outskirts of Kabul, the U.S. military said.
Here are the latest figures for foreign military deaths in Afghanistan since the Taliban government was toppled in 2001:
NATO/U.S.-LED COALITION FORCES:
United States 388
Other nations 39
Last year was the bloodiest in Afghanistan since U.S.-led forces overthrew the Taliban in 2001 and violence is increasing this year.
More than 4,000 people were killed in fighting in 2006, a quarter of them civilians and more than 170 of them foreign soldiers.
