Americans Afghanistan, An Afghan in the uniform of an Air Corps pilot in Afghanistan opened fire on a group of Americans today, killing nine before he was shot dead.

The Afghan army said the gunman was a 20-year veteran of the Afghan Air Corps and shot after arguing with the Americans. The Taliban claimed the murderer was an insurgent who impersonates an officer to access the secure area.

Among the dead were eight members of U.S. military personnel and an American contractor. Five Afghan soldiers were injured in more violence, receiving broken bones and cuts, the spokesman said Afghan Air Corps Colonel Baha.

Baha said the pilot began shooting after an argument during a meeting in an operating room air Corps in Afghanistan.

“Suddenly, in the middle of the meeting, they started shooting,” said Baha. “After the shooting started, we saw a number of Afghan army officers and soldiers rushed from the building. Some even jumping out windows to escape.”

It was the deadliest incident yet of an Afghan ally turned against their coalition partners, officials said. This is the seventh time this year that coalition troops or Afghan security forces have been killed by any member of the Afghan security forces or insurgents posing as them.

Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid said the gunman, who died during filming, impersonating an officer and gained access to the facility with the help of other people who work there.
