Afghan soldier shoots three diggers

THREE Australian soldiers are in hospital this morning after being shot by a rogue Afghan soldier, just 10 days after three diggers died in a similar attack.

The Afghan National Army says one of its soldiers opened fire from a tower at Charmistan in Uruzgan province.

Two Afghan soldiers were also wounded.

All five soldiers received non-life threatening wounds and have been taken to the military hospital at Tarin Kot.

The gunman fled the scene of the shooting in an Afghan National Army vehicle.
