AFGHANISTAN, (Daily Mail, US) 19 March 2017 - An Afghan soldier opened fire Sunday inside a base in the southern Helmand province, wounding three U.S. soldiers before being shot dead.
Navy Cpt. Bill Salvin, a U.S. military spokesman, said coalition forces had killed the soldier ‘to end the attack,’ but Col. Mohammad Rasoul Zazai, an Afghan army spokesman, said the soldier had made a ‘mistake’ and had not fired deliberately. Several U.S. troops have been killed in Afghanistan in recent years in so-called insider attacks carried out by Afghan police or soldiers.
