Militants Fire on Afghan Delegation Visiting Scene of Attack

An Afghan government delegation visiting one of the sites where a U.S. soldier is suspected of shooting and killing 16 civilians came under fire today.

A member of the group’s security team died during the attack, according to the Associated Press, but it’s unclear whether anyone was injured.

The group was inside a mosque offering their condolences and prayers when they heard small and heavy arms fire.

The delegation includes two brothers of Afghan President Hamid Karzai, senior officials from Kabul and at least a dozen journalists.

Security forces traveling with the group responded, exchanging fire with the militants for about 10 minutes. . .
