Nunavut teen charged after Cambridge Bay Mountie stabbed numerous times: RCMP

The shooting broke out at Camp Shaheen, the headquarters for the Afghan military's 209th Corps, which is located in the northern city of Mazar-i-Sharif. US soldiers have been wounded.

An Afghan soldier is alleged to have fired inside a military compound in northern Afghanistan and injured about seven U.S. troops.

If confirmed, the insider attack would be the second in a week in Afghanistan.

The NATO-led Resolute Support Mission in Afghanistan said it has opened an investigation, adding no United States or Resolute Support forces were killed. In a statement, Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said an Afghan commando loyal to the militant group had opened fire on foreign "invaders", killing four and wounding four others.

Dawning the tan blazer the Otto wore during this confession, Warmbier called the confession "an unbelievable performance". They kept quiet "on the false premise that ( North Korea ) would treat Otto fairly and let him go", he said.

The statement read that the incident was under investigation and more details would be provided when available. Another Afghan soldier was also wounded. "One Afghan soldier was killed and one ws wounded in the incident".

More information will be provided as it becomes available, they said.

The attackers, some dressed in Afghan military uniforms, managed to pass through two checkpoints in military vehicles before being stopped, after which they opened fire on the busy compound.

US President Donald Trump is learned to have delegated authority on the number of troops in Afghanistan to Defense Secretary Jim Mattis.
