One high-ranking military official was killed by an Afghan soldier in an attack at a Kabul camp, US Defense and Military officials have confirmed.
According to the officials, US and Afghan military officials were meeting at the Marshal Fahim National Defense University in Kabul when suddenly a gunman wearing an Afghan military uniform sprayed the gathering with automatic weapons fire.
Unconfirmed reports say that as many as two Afghan military officials were also killed. Given the severity of the wounds, US officials say the overall death toll could rise.
