Berlin: A German general is among those wounded in an attack on a military academy in Kabul, the army said Tuesday, after a man in Afghan military uniform opened fire, killing a US soldier.

"The wounded German general, who is not in a critical condition, is receiving medical treatment. His relatives were informed," the army said in a statement.
A US official said a US soldier was shot dead and 15 other personnel were wounded Tuesday when a man in an Afghan military uniform opened fire at the British-run academy.

A report in the New York Times, citing unnamed sources, said the American fatality was a "major general", in what would be the highest-ranking US fatality since the invasion 13 years ago.

Officials in Kabul said earlier that three Afghan officers were wounded.
