2 French Foreign legionnaires die in Afghanistan

France says 2 members of the French Foreign Legion have been killed in Afghanistan.
A statement from the office of French President Nicolas Sarkozy says a solider in the Afghan National Army opened fire on the troops Thursday.
The shooting is the latest in a series of attacks by members of the Afghan security forces against their coalition partners. Such attacks have raised fears of increased Taliban infiltration of the Afghan police and army as NATO speeds up the training of the security forces.
This year has been the most deadly for French forces in Afghanistan since an international operation began there in 2001.
