Afghanistan Rejects UN Claims on Killing of Staff Mistaken as Insurgent

The Afghan government has denied claims of a United Nations report indicating the possible killing of U.N. staffers by friendly fire from the Afghan police, Los Angeles Times reports.

“We …do not accept this report; we in fact reject it,” a spokesman for Afghanistan’s Interior Ministry, Zemari Bashary, said. “The terrorists … were wearing police uniforms. The first unit of police that arrived to the scene witnessed one of them, a suicide bomber, who was shooting in a scattered manner everywhere.”
