U.S. Soldier Slightly Hurt in Kabul Gun Battle

A U.S. soldier was slightly wounded in a gun battle with three attackers on the outskirts of Kabul, the U.S. military said Sunday. One of the attackers was captured in the Saturday night clash near the Afghan National Army’s main training center on the road leading out of Kabul to the eastern city of Jalalabad, a statement from U.S. spokesman Colonel Rodney Davis said. It said soldiers from the U.S.-led force, who had been observing a training exercise, exchanged small-arms fire with the attackers and a quick-reaction force from Kabul’s international peacekeeping force came to assist. “One enemy soldier was captured and held for questioning by coalition personnel,” the statement said.
