US General Killed In Afghan ‘Insider

An American two-star general has been killed and 15 other people injured, including two Britons and a senior German officer, in a shooting at a military academy in Afghanistan.
The suspected insider attack was carried out by a man dressed in an Afghan military uniform at the Marshal Fahim National Defense University in Kabul.

The shooting happened during a high-level visit by Nato officers. US Army Major General Harold Greene was killed in the attack, making him the highest-ranking member of the American military to be killed in the Iraq or Afghanistan wars.

Pentagon spokesman, Rear Admiral John Kirby, also said the two-star general 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 plane that crashed into the Pentagon.
