Ten NATO soldiers died in Afghanistan in the past two days in the country’s southern and eastern provinces, The Washington Post reported Friday.

A member of the Afghan Natonal Army killed four soldiers in eastern Afghanistan on Friday, the Post said. The suspected shooter was apprehended, the Post reported, citing a NATO statement.

The attack came hours after a military helicopter crash in southern Afghanistan killed six NATO servicemembers, the Post reported.

“The cause of the crash is under investigation,” the Post quoted a NATO statement as saying.
