Pentagon confirms US general killed in Afghanistan

The gunman shot into a group of coalition troops while they were on a visit to the Marshal Fahim National Defense University in Kabul City, he said, leaving 15 casualties including American soldiers.  Although U.S. media announced that the officer was a two-star general based on a Pentagon official, Kirby declined to give any details about the victim's rank and name. He said an investigation into the event was continuing, but added it was believed the perpetrator was an Afghan solider. The death is one of the highest-ranking in the U.S. army since the 9/11 events in the U.S., when three-star general Lieutenant General Timothy Joseph Maude was killed in the Pentagon attack on September 11, 2001. Afghan defense ministry sources confirmed the death of three foreign soldiers, but said there were conflicting reports about the nationality of the other two slain soldiers.
