1 American killed, others injured in Afghan attack



WASHINGTON — A U.S. official says “about a dozen” of the victims of an Afghan insider attack today are Americans, and at least one American was killed.
The official says many details of the attack early today were still unclear and the numbers could change.
A man dressed in an Afghan army uniform opened fire on foreign troops at Camp Qargha, a base west of the capital, Kabul. Among the wounded was a German brigadier general.
Gen. Mohammmad Zahir Azimi, a spokesman for Afghanistan’s Defense Ministry, said a “terrorist in an army uniform” opened fire on both local and international troops.
Azimi said the shooter had been killed.
