Afghan policewoman kills US military adviser
An Afghan policewoman has shot dead a US military adviser inside Kabul police headquarters, Afghan officials say.

It is the first reported incident in which a female member of Afghanistan's security forces has opened fire on a Nato soldier.

The attacker has been detained. Officials say they suspect she has links with the Taliban.

There has been a rise in incidents in which foreign troops have been killed by Afghan troops or policemen.

In Monday's incident, offcials say the woman - an officer at the interior ministry - came looking for the police chief at the heavily secured headquarters.

The US adviser was thought to have been on his way to a canteen when she shot him with her pistol.

In September the US suspended training for local police recruits because of "insider attacks".

#1  Teevee time delay broadcasting permits the editing of gang symbols by NFL players, can't we somehow do the same with these so-called "insider attack" incidents?
