Three American contractors were killed in a suspected insider attack at the international airport in Kabul on Thursday, according to several news reports. Officials said the shooter was dressed in an Afghan soldier’s uniform.
“We can confirm that there was a shooting incident at North Kabul International Airport complex 29 January at approximately 6:40 p.m. [local time]. Three coalition contractors were killed as was an Afghan local national,” the U.S. military said Thursday, according to ABC News.
An Afghan air force official also told Reuters that the motive of the shooting had yet to be determine and an “investigation has been opened."
It also hadn’t been confirmed whether the suspected shooter was an active member of Afghan security forces or if the "Afghan local national" killed was the shooter.
