Three U.S. contractors and one Afghan national are dead after a shooting Thursday in Afghanistan.
The shooting happened Thursday evening on a base at North Kabul International Airport. Several sources say the gunman was an Afghan soldier or someone in an Army uniform, though those reports haven't been officially confirmed.
But if true, this would be another so-called "green-on-blue" attack, where Afghan soldiers or police officers turn their weapons on coalition forces. There have been fewer of these attacks in recent years, but this one comes just weeks after the U.S. and NATO officially ended their combat mission in the country.
