A U.S. soldier opened fire on Afghan civilians Sunday morning — killing 10 people and wounding five. A spokesman for NATO-led forces in Afghanistan talked to the BBC.

“It’s not clear at this time, and we can’t speculate on what the individual’s motives were for the incident, nor is it clear if the individual had any ties or issues with those that were wounded.”

A suspected grenade attack kills six people and injures nearly 70 more in Kenya. A CNN report says police suspect Somali terrorists.

“In this case, though, we do not know — but certainly there’s a heightened level of tension in Nairobi because of Kenyan forces moving into Somalia and trying to take on al-Shabaab.”

A minute of silence marks the anniversary of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan that set off the world’s largest nuclear disaster since Chernobyl in 1986. Here’s Al Jazeera.

“This is happening up and down the coast. It’s happening across Japan. People are being told to stop, even, working on their, messaging on their social networks. For everyone in this country, so devastated, to pause and remember.”

After winning Wyoming, GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney has a commanding lead in the race. Rick Santorum’s win in Kansas gives him at least 33 of the 40 delegates from that state. But an NBC News report says — don’t forget about Newt Gingrich.

“While this is increasingly being seen as a two-man race, Newt Gingrich is counting on some big primaries this coming week in his native South to propel him back into the hunt.”
