KABUL - An Afghan army soldier opened fire in the Defense Ministry on Monday, killing two ministry personnel and wounding seven others, a ministry spokesman said.
Spokesman Zaher Azimy also said a suicide bomber who had entered the ministry was killed before he had time to detonate his explosives.
Azimy declined to comment on whether the man who opened fire had been working with the suicide bomber, or attempting to stop him, or on whether the toll of the dead included the bomber.
