Afghan soldier guns down US general in Kabul

An Afghan soldier shot dead a US general on Tuesday at an army training centre in Kabul ? the highest-ranking American officer to be killed since the September 11, 2001 attacks.

The shooting, which left more than a dozen other soldiers including a senior German officer wounded, rocked the US-led project to train up the Afghan army as NATO combat forces withdraw after 13 years of fighting the Taliban.


The Afghan soldier was himself killed after he opened fire during a high-level visit by NATO officers to the Marshal Fahim National Defense University, a sprawling training complex on the outskirts of the capital.

?Among the casualties was an American general officer who was killed,? Pentagon spokesman Rear Admiral John Kirby told reporters in Washington, declining to name the general.

Kirby said that the fatality was the highest-ranking US officer to have been killed since the 9/11 attacks when Lieutenant General Timothy Joseph Maude was killed by a hijacked airliner that crashed into the Pentagon.

No US general has been killed in combat since the Vietnam War.

Kirby said that ?up to 15″ people were injured in Tuesday?s attack. Separately, the German army said that one of its generals was wounded.

?We believe that the assailant was an Afghan soldier,? Kirby added.

Afghan officials had earlier described the attacker as a man wearing Afghan uniform, suggesting he may not have been a soldier.

The shooting was by far the highest profile ?insider attack? of the Afghan conflict, in which scores of US-led NATO troops have been killed by Afghan soldiers turning their guns on their allies.
