President Hamid Karzai has strongly condemned the attack on Afghan and foreign military trainers in Afghanistan’s National Military Academy.

Early reports by the Ministry of Defense indicate that a man dressed in military uniform opened fire this noon at Afghan military personnel and their foreign colleagues leaving one foreign officer killed and a number of others including Afghan and foreign officers wounded.

President Karzai describes attack on ANA personnel and foreign trainers who were visiting the military academy installations and helping with the buildup of Afghan security forces as an act by the enemies who don’t want to see Afghanistan have strong institutions.
