Two US soldiers and three Afghan policemen have been shot dead after an Afghan police officer reportedly opened fire inside a police station.

The incident in Wardak province appears to be the latest in a series of insider attacks against coalition and Afghan forces.

It comes a day after a deadline given by Afghans for US special forces to withdraw from the province.
