Capt. Kirby said the wounded are in stable condition at a medical facility. He didn’t disclose their numbers or nationality, but other officials said the five shot were all Americans.
The attack Tuesday was the 19th so far this year in which an Afghan soldier or policeman has turned his weapon on members of the international military coalition. Capt. Kirby said a total of 26 coalition members have been killed in those attacks, including 13 Americans.
Capt. Kirby said U.S. officials are deeply concerned by this year’s increase in insider attacks.
