KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — The coalition in Afghanistan says a gunman in Afghan uniform opened fire on its personnel before being killed on the outskirts of the capital.
Kabul's Defense Ministry spokesman Gen. Mohammad Zahir Azimi meanwhile confirmed that an Afghan soldier was killed in Saturday's exchange at a military facility.
He says a member of the NATO-led international Security Assistance Force was wounded in his leg. He provided no other details.
ISAF confirmed that none of its personnel were killed in the exchange but provided no other details, nor the nationality of the forces involved.
Such insider attacks by Afghan troops, or insurgents in their uniforms, have left 15 foreign soldiers dead this year.
