Two members of the U.S. military were shot dead on Saturday inside the heavily barricaded Interior Ministry in the centre of the Afghan capital, Afghan security sources said, as anti-Western protests raged for a fifth day across the country.
It was not immediately clear who killed the Americans, said one Afghan security source. They were gunned down during a scuffle, another source said.
"American and Afghan troops were present at the time of the shootout, but we are unsure who killed them," a senior Afghan security source told Reuters on condition of anonymity.
A spokesman for NATO's International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) said they were aware of "an accident" in central Kabul, but declined to give more details.

They call this an “accident”? Stepping on someones foot is an accident, this was MURDER!
It is clear that Odummy has no plan to deal with his muslim friends. He probably has another aapology coming up. Karzai is a backstabber and his people are mindless savages. Shoot them where they stand and ask questions later. This is war, not a garden party!
Can we please nuke Mecca now?
An eye for an eye.
For every US citizen killed in Afghanistan, 77 korans (sp?) should be burned.
2 American officers killed in Afghan ministry
The Americans killed were a colonel and a major, the official said.
“For every US citizen killed in Afghanistan, 77 korans (sp?) should be burned.”
along with those carrying them.
More like 1000 Afghans should die for every American soldier that is killed. Collective mass punishment worked when the muslims did it to one another.
A Colonel and a Major cannot even go to an Afghani government ministry without getting killed.
How can we get our troops out if we can’t even engage the Afghan government at high levels without being shot?
Obama is on the verge of getting all of our troops there killed.
Does this bring the total Americans dead to four from this insane koran burning incident? Karzai is fanning the flames of Afghanis’ “passions”. He needs to be taught a lesson.
” The Taliban has claimed responsibility for an attack inside the Afghan interior ministry that killed at least two American officers, the terrorist group said Saturday.”
That should put a damper on the Taliban peace talks
It was not Americans who desecrated the Qurans; it was Muslim and Taliban prisoners who were using the margins of the Quran to send messages back and forth.
Writing in the Quran was the desecration, but it was done by the Muslims themselves.
A desecrated Quran is required to be destroyed by burning.
All the Americans did was to identify the desecrated Qurans and process them in accordance with the Muslim rules for disposing of desecrated Qurans, i.e., burning.
Why hasn’t this fact been brought out?
When I see a comment like this I recall the mysterious ball that slowly descended over the Temple Mount in Feb. 2011. Footage is no longer available at THE BLAZE because of copyright issues but may be available elsewhere.
They were looking for an excuse to riot and they found it but instead of a President to squash these murderous thugs he apologizes and gives them more ammo because they know he's weak.
Yes, Reagan would. obama needs to remember he is CIC, not AIC (apologizer in chief).
