Afghan agent kills NATO soldier, civilian in Panjshir


An agent from Afghanistan’s intelligence unit opened fire at a foreign base on Saturday, killing a soldier and a civilian from the NATO-led coalition and wounding a third, NATO and the police chief of normally peaceful northern Panjshir province said. The agent from the National Directorate of Security (NDS) was in the Panjshir valley for personal reasons, when he got into an argument with some people from the NATO base, police chief General Qaseem Junglebagh told Reuters. “He had a pistol, opened fire and killed two… He injured a third who opened fire and killed the NDS agent,” Junglebagh said. The NATO-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) confirmed one soldier and one civilian working for ISAF were killed in an attack on Saturday, but gave no further details. Junglebagh had said both the dead were soldiers.
