The attack took place in the Karkh district of the Herat

province late on Monday when two Afghan Army soldiers turned their weapons on Spanish troopers and injured at least three of them.

A local security official said on condition of anonymity that the Afghan soldiers belong to the 3rd brigade of the Afghan National Army in the province.
