A gunman wearing an Afghan security forces uniform opened fire on a group including General Scott Miller, the top US and NATO commander in Afghanistan, and powerful Afghan police chief General Abdul Raziq as they ended a meeting in the southern city of Kandahar.
Raziq, an anti-Taliban strongman and key US ally who was credited with keeping a lid on the insurgency in the south, was killed along with Kandahar's provincial intelligence chief and an Afghan journalist.
It was also an unusual incident for the US military, whose generals seldom face attack and are rarely wounded.
Pakistan on Thursday strongly condemned the terrorist attack resulting in the sad demise of senior Kandhar security officials and causing injuries to many others.
“Pakistan stands with the Afghan government and people and reiterates its support for the Afghan democratic process,” ministry of foreign affairs said in a statement.
