The top US commander in Afghanistan, General Scott Miller, has escaped unhurt in an insider attack inside the governor’s compound in Kandahar province. General Abdul Razeq was killed, The Washington Post reported.
The governor of the province, Zalmai Wesa, and the provincial chief of intelligence were also killed.
A senior security official said the governor’s bodyguard opened fire and hit Razeq in the back as soon as officials came out of the meeting. Raquez is one of Afghanistan’s most powerful commanders and an enemy of the Taliban. At least two US soldiers were wounded in the incident.
