Afghan attack kills US troops

In this Wednesday, April 18, 2012, photo, an Afghan refugee boy, center, sleeps on a bench, while his mother waits her turn to receive free medicine from a clinic, in a slum on the outskirts of Islamabad, Pakistan. Hundreds of thousands of Afghan refugees are in limbo as Pakistan, increasingly frustrated with hosting the world's largest and longest-running refugee population, weighs whether to renew their refugee status by the end of this year. A large-scale return of the 1.7 million Afghan refugees currently living in Pakistan would be a massive problem for Afghanistan at a time when it's already struggling to maintain security in the face of an American troop withdrawal. But Pakistan increasingly seems to be angry at a refugee population that many feel has overstayed its welcome. (AP Photo/Muhammed Muheisen)

An Afghan soldier turned his gun on American troops at a checkpoint in the country's east, killing two Americans and at least two fellow members of Afghanistan's army in a shooting that marked both the continuance of a disturbing trend of insider attacks and the 2,000th U.S. troop death in the long-running war.
