Kabul: An Afghan police official says an Afghan policewoman on Monday killed an American adviser at the Kabul police headquarters. Kabul's Deputy Police Chief Mohammad Daoud Amin says an investigation is underway to determine whether the killing was intentional or accidental.
It was not known whether the victim was a military or civilian adviser. The NATO military command says it's looking into reports of the shooting but had no independent information.
At least 53 international troops have been killed by Afghan soldiers or police in 2012, and a number of other assaults are still under investigations. NATO forces, due to mostly withdraw from the country by 2014, have speeded up efforts to train and advise Afghan military and police units before the pullout.
