Kabul: Officials in Afghanistan said the policewoman who killed a US contractor in Kabul is an Iranian who came to the war-torn country a decade back along with her husband and managed to secure a fake ID.

Interior Ministry spokesman Sediq Sediqi said on Tuesday the policewoman had displayed "unstable behaviour" but no militants links have been established as yet.
On Monday, the policewoman identified as Sgt Nargas shot 49-year-old Joseph Griffin, of Mansfield, Georgia, in what was the first such shooting by a woman in a spate of insider attacks by Afghans against their foreign allies.
