"An insurgent affiliated group posing as local militia. baited a local Afghan militia leader and a USA service member with an Afghan interpreter into a compound under the pretense of a security.meeting", said spokesman Captain Tom Gresback.

The incident was the lastest in a series of insider attacks against US forces, including an attack in Achin district in June in which an Afghan commando opened fire, killing three USA personnel and wounding another.

When the meeting ended, Gresback said the Taliban-linked insurgents opened fire, killing the militia leader and wounding the American service member and the interpreter.

On Friday night, five police personnel were killed and five others wounded after Taliban attacked police checkpoints in Imam Sahib district, northern Kunduz province, district administrative Chief Mahbubullah Sayyedi told Xinhua. Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid told The Associated Press the attackers had infiltrated the local force months earlier.

"We continue to strategically push IS-K back from their fighting positions taking seven kilometers and clearing much of the Mohmand Valley, Nangarhar", Gresback said.

The incident occurred Thursday as USA soldiers were patrolling in the Islamic State-stronghold of Achin in Nangarhar province, according to Hakim Khan, a commander of the government militia involved in the incident.

U.S. Special Forces, cooperating with Afghan units, have been heavily engaged in Nangarhar, where Islamic State in Khorasan, the local affiliate of the radical movement, first appeared three years ago.
