'Insider' shooting kills US general in Kabul

A US general has been killed and more than a dozen people wounded in what’s been reported as an insider attack in Afghanistan.

The attacker is believed to have been an Afghan soldier.

The incident raises fresh concerns about the ability of NATO soldiers to train and advise Afghan security forces as western nations pull out.

The shooting took place at a training centre in Kabul. A German general was also injured.
