Afghan Policeman Shoots Six Colleagues

An Afghan policeman shot dead six other policemen in an outpost in Southern Afghanistan early Thursday, a local government spokesman said.

The shooting in Sangin district of Helmand province was the latest in a series of shootings by Afghan security personnel of their local and foreign colleagues, Voice of Russia reported.

Omar Zwak, a spokesman for the governor of Helmand, said two national and four local policemen were killed by the gunman.

Zwak said it was unclear whether a dispute led to the killings or whether the shooter was a Taliban infiltrator.
