Afghan policewoman shoots dead American in Kabul
An Afghan policewoman shot dead an American contractor in Kabul's police headquarters in what appeared to be the first insider attack by a female member of the local security forces.

The officer killed the contractor with a single shot from her service pistol, Afghan officials said, and her motive was not immediately clear.

The killing means around 60 troops and civilian workers have been shot dead by their allies this year, accounting for around one-in-seven of all international deaths in the Afghan campaign in 2012.

The police woman was arrested after the killing and was on Monday being questioned. Mohammad Daoud Amin, Kabul's deputy police chief, told the AP news agency she was called Nargas and was a mother of four. She had worked for a human rights department of the police for two years and was licensed to carry a pistol. He did not know if the killer and victim had known each other.

Also on Monday, police said an officer at a checkpoint in northern Afghanistan shot dead five of his colleagues and then joined the insurgents.
