Afghanistan: 8 NATO Coalition Troops & 1 Civilian Killed By Afghan Pilot at Kabul Airport (UPDATE: All Killed, American Soldiers)
Nine people have been killed at the Kabul, Afghanistan airport by an Afghan pilot. It is being reported that an argument between an Afghan pilot and an international colleague resulted in the Afghan military pilot opened fire on international trainers and a “gunfight” ensued.
The NATO-led International Security Assistance Force in Afghanistan said an Afghan military pilot opened fire on international troops, sparking a “gunfight.” The Taliban, however, claimed responsibility for the attack and said it had been working with the shooter for some time — an assertion that NATO denied.
It is being reported at the Seattle PI, that all of the all eight of the military troops and the contractor killed by an Afghan pilot Wednesday in Kabul were Americans. Was this a “rogue” pilot or was this a terror act by an Afghan who was working with the Taliban?
