    Aljazeera has more on the latest insider attack.

    An Afghan policewoman has shot and killed a US security adviser in the Kabul police headquarters, NATO and local officials say.

    A senior police official told Al Jazeera that the shooting occurred at 10:15am local time (05:45 GMT) on Monday.

    The policewoman approached the adviser as he was walking in the heavily guarded police chief’s compound in a bustling area of the capital. She then drew a pistol and shot him once, a senior police official told the Reuters news agency.

    The woman, a member of the police’s gender equality team, is in custody, officials said. Mohammad Daoud Amin, Kabul’s deputy police chief, said an investigation is under way to determine whether the killing was intentional or accidental.

    Amin said Nargis, a mother of four, had worked with a human rights department of the police for two years and had earlier been a refugee in Pakistan and Iran. She could enter the compound armed because as a police officer she was licensed to carry a pistol, he said.
