The International Security Assistance Force said the soldier-turned-insurgent and another militant were killed Wednesday during a security operation in the Ghaziabad district of Kunar province, Khaama Press reported.
ISAF officials said one of the two victims, identified as Mahmood, was responsible for the death of a U.S. soldier during a so-called insider attack in Kunar province in May 2012.
NATO said insider attacks killed 61 coalition troops in 45 incidents last year.
