7 U.S. Service Members Wounded In ‘Insider Attack’ In Afghanistan


For the second time in a week, a man in an Afghan army uniform opened fire on U.S. service members at a base in Afghanistan. The attack Saturday at Camp Shaheen left seven American soldiers wounded, according to officials with the NATO-led mission in the country.

The violence comes just seven days after an Afghan soldier turned his weapon on his U.S. counterparts in another region of Afghanistan, killing three soldiers and wounding another. The Taliban claimed responsibility for that attack, which unfolded on June 10 in eastern Afghanistan.

And earlier this year, Taliban fighters dressed as Afghan soldiers stormed Camp Shaheen, killing more than 160 people at the base in northern Afghanistan. Read more at NPR.
