General’s Killer Hid in Bathroom

“The Afghan soldier who killed a U.S. two-star general and wounded other top officers fired two to three bursts of gunfire from a bathroom before he was killed by Afghan forces,” USA Today reports.

“The investigation into the killing of Maj. Gen. Harold J. Greene, the highest-ranked U.S. officer to be slain in combat since 1970 in the Vietnam War, has not yet determined a motive, said the official who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak about the investigation.”

“The shooting wounded about 15 people, including a German general and two Afghan generals. The attacker went by one name, Rafiqullah, an Afghan official told the Associated Press in Kabul.”
