Gunman in Afghan security force uniform kills 3 civilians working for NATO coalition
KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) ¯¯¯ NATO says a person wearing an Afghan national security force uniform turned his weapon against civilian contractors working with the U.S.-led military coalition, killing three.
NATO said the attack occurred Sunday in western Afghanistan.
The coalition says the gunman was killed during the incident, which is still being investigated.
No further details or information about the civilians who died was released.
Afghan security forces or militants dressed in their uniforms have been killing a rising number of coalition forces, but they have not been specifically targeting contractors working for the coalition.
So far this year, 26 foreign troops have been killed in these types of attacks.
