This really shows how closely Australia and America are linked in Battle. You better believe we are Deadly Allies.

US special forces kill rogue Afghan soldier who shot dead Aussie cook

Lance Corporal Andrew Jones has been remembered as gregarious, popular, cheeky, a true gentleman and a "great cook".

American special forces in Afghanistan have shot and killed the Afghan soldier who killed Lance-Corporal Andrew Jones.

The Australian soldier, aged 25, was shot on May 30 in Afghanistan by the rogue member of the Afghan army who was in a watchtower on sentry duty.

The circumstances of the Lance-Cpl Jonesís death are not clear, but it seems the Afghan soldier- Shafidullah Guhlamon had only been at the patrol base for a few weeks.

He shot the Australian three times, as Lance-Cpl Jones stepped out of his tent, and then fled the patrol base, evading shots from another Afghan soldier and a search.

Australian troops were on a long term deployment with the American special forces unit that tracked the Afghan soldier to his home village in Khost Province, close to the Pakistan border.

Itís understood he was shot after a warning was given for him to surrender.

The Age has confirmed that since 2001, Australians from the SAS and Commando regiments have served on ''third country deployments'' and in turn have fought alongside some of the most highly classified and best-trained combat groups in Afghanistan. Crucially, the Australian troops have been refused permission to participate in cross-border raids into Pakistan.

Australiaís Defence Minister will give more details at a press conference shortly.

Lance-Cpl Jones, from Victoria, was the cook with the 9th Force Support Battalion and the 25th Australian soldier killed in Afghanistan.

His funeral was held in Melbourne earlier this month.
