Afghan soldier killed after shooting, wounding 3 US troops

Afghan soldier killed after shooting, wounding 3 US troops | 19 March 2017 | An Afghan soldier opened fire Sunday inside a base in the southern Helmand province, wounding three US soldiers before being shot dead. Navy Captain Bill Salvin, a US military spokesman, said coalition forces killed the soldier "to end the attack," but Colonel Mohammad Rasoul Zazai, an Afghan Army spokesman, said the soldier had made a mistake and had not fired deliberately. Several US troops have been killed in Afghanistan in recent years in so-called insider attacks carried out by Afghan police or soldiers. In October, an Afghan man in a military uniform shot dead a US soldier and an American civilian contractor inside a military base in Kabul before being killed.
