Shocking! soldiers open fire, kill thirteen sleeping colleagues

Two soldiers have poisoned and killed 13 other troop members while they slept. Instead of watching their colleagues’ backs, the two Afghan troops opened fire on them in Afghanistan’s embattled northern Kunduz province, officials said on Tuesday. Afghan ministry of defence spokesman Gen. Dawlat Wazir said the ministry has launched an investigation into the sad incident.

The two soldiers deserted the small base after killing their fellow troops in Zakhil area on the outskirts of Kunduz city, the capital of the province. “We have sent a team to the area to investigate the matter,’’ Wazir said. The Taliban has claimed responsibility for the attack but told a different story of how the events unfolded. It claimed the base was attacked by its troops and all weapons were seized. A provincial council member from the province, Amruddin Wali, said the two soldiers were affiliated with the Taliban. Wali noted that the defense ministry however has not clarified the soldiers’ affiliation with the insurgent group yet.
