Afghan shooting kills American soldier, contractor

KABUL, Afghanistan

The recent attacks bring the death toll of American troops to 2,000 since the start of the war 11 years ago, according to a count kept by the Associated Press. Afghan soldiers and policemen have gunned down more than 50 foreign troops so far this year.

The attacks are taking a toll on the partnership between international and Afghan forces. The U.S. military is now restricting operations with small-sized Afghan units.

It's not clear if the shooter in the latest attack was killed. The deaths are under investigation.
