Afghan Intelligence Agent Kills Two Americans in Inside Attack

October 16, 2012

A member of the Afghan Intelligence service blew himself up on Saturday using a suicide vest, killing two Americans and four members of the Afghan intelligence agency, according to The New York Times.

The attack occurred when a delegation of members of the American coalition and those from Afghanistan’s National Directorate of Security arrived to deliver furniture to Maruf district, part of Kandahar Province, according to The Times.

The attack killed a former American officer and an American soldier. It also killed the deputy intelligence director for Kandahar Province, Ghulam Rasool; his two bodyguards; and another member of Afghan intelligence.

 

The attack is the latest in a string of so-called “green-on-blue” killings, in which Afghan forces turn on coalition members.

Additionally, Afghan officials said on Monday that a separate coalition strike against the Taliban killed two boys and a girl from the same family.
