But the important local leaders working with the U.S. wiped out.
Via Daily Caller:
A gunman dressed in an Afghan army uniform opened fire on a high-level security meeting in Afghanistan’s Kandahar province, killing three senior provincial officials and wounding three members of the U.S.-led coalition in attendance.
The target of the attack, which was immediately claimed by the Taliban, was Gen. Austin “Scott” Miller, the commander of U.S. forces in Afghanistan. Miller had just stood up to leave the meeting when the gunman opened fire with an automatic rifle, Kabul Tribune editor Mustafa Kazemi reported, citing eyewitnesses to the attack.
A spokesman for U.S. Forces-Afghanistan confirmed that three coalition personnel were injured, but did not provide further information about their condition. Miller was unharmed in the attack, U.S. officials said.
