A US major general has reportedly been killed and 15 other people have been wounded after a man dressed in an Afghan army uniform opened fire with a machine gun at the British-run army base known as “Sandhurst in the sand”.


The victims of the attack included both local and Nato forces, a spokesperson for Afghanistan’s defence ministry said, while the German military said those injured included one of its brigadier generals.


The incident occurred at Camp Qargha, a British military training academy located outside the Afghan capital Kabul.


US officials confirmed that one American had been killed and that “about a dozen” of the wounded were also from the US, but declined to comment further.Scissors-32x32.png
