An 'insider attack' at an Afghan base left 7 US soldiers wounded


An "insider attack" at a base in northern Afghanistan on Saturday killed at least one Afghan and wounded seven American soldiers, according to the Associated Press. The soldiers were subsequently evacuated after the incident at Camp Shaheen, the headquarters of the Afghan army's 209th Corps. 

The incident marked the second "insider attack" in one week.

Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid lauded the attack, but did not claim Taliban responsibility. 

Last week, three American soldiers were killed after a Taliban loyalist infiltrated the army, who was specifically tasked with seeking opportunities to attack foreign soldiers.
