Afghan president: 2 dead in attack are Americans

   KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) -- Afghanistan's president says two Americans training security forces have been killed by a man in an Afghan police uniform.

   Hamid Karzai condemned the killing Monday of what he described as two American trainers. There were no further details in a statement released by Karzai's office. Karzai offered his condolences to the men's families.
   A man wearing an Afghan border police uniform shot dead two NATO service members inside a compound in northern Afghanistan, the military alliance said without giving their nationalities. The assailant fled the scene, and it was unclear if the shooter was an Afghan police officer who turned on his Western counterparts or an insurgent who put on a uniform to infiltrate the base.
