NATO Pulls Out Of Afghan Ministries After Attack

NATO has pulled out of all of Afghanistan’s ministries after an attack in Kabul resulted in the death of two U.S. advisers, reports BBC:

Nato said an “individual” had turned his gun on the officers, believed to be an American colonel and major, and had not yet been identified or caught.

Nato commander Gen John Allen condemned the attack as “cowardly”.

The shootings come amid five days of deadly protests over the burning of copies of the Koran by US soldiers.
