The Ministry of Defence has confirmed it is investigating reports of a shooting incident involving an Afghan soldier at a British-run military academy near Kabul. Officials said they are aware of reports that an Afghan commander was injured and that there had been international casualties.
Unconfirmed reports suggested an argument broke out at the academy at Qargha between some Afghans and an Afghan soldier who opened fire, the BBC reported.
We are aware of reports of an incident at Qargha. The incident is under investigation and it would be inappropriate to comment further at this time.
The officers' training academy - dubbed "Sandhurst in the sand" - took its first cadets last October and will be the only remaining British military presence in the country after operations end this year.
