Kabul, Afghanistan -- Afghan officials say U.S. troops have shot and killed two Afghan civilians as their truck was approaching an American convoy.

Interior Ministry spokesman Sediq Sediqi says the victims in Monday's incident were employees of a company that repairs police vehicles.

U.S. forces' spokesman Jamie Graybeal says the vehicle failed to heed instructions to stop as it came close to the convoy outside of the Afghan capital, Kabul, and the soldiers took "appropriate measures to protect themselves."

He confirms that two individuals were killed and says an assessment is under way.
