Two Americans were killed and another three were injured today (October 19, 2016) in an attack on foreign troops by an Afghan soldier in the Afghan capital of the predominantly Islamic country, according to the Washington Post website.

An Afghan troop fired on international advisers at an ammunition depot near Camp Morehead -- a training site for Afghan commandos -- about six miles south of Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan.

The attack killed one U.S. service member and injured another. One U.S. civilian was also killed, and two more were wounded in the assault, a statement from the NATO-led coalition said.

The gunman -- who was wearing an Afghan army uniform -- was killed after international troops responded with gunfire. The injured Americans remained in stable condition, NATO said.
