Afghan Taliban claim responsibility for Kabul attack

Kabul, Jan 30, 2015 (Agency) 

The Afghan Taliban have claimed responsibility for an attack on Kabul's international airport that killed three American contractors at a military base attached to the airport.


The attacker in the Thursday incident was a Taliban agent who "had penetrated into the security forces and was waiting for such a target for a long time", a spokesperson for the group, Zabiullah Mujahid, said Friday, CNN reported.


"Yesterday in the evening he managed to get to a crowd of invading and infidel American military forces where he turned his gun towards them and opened fire," he added.


A US military official earlier said the three Americans were contractors, not active duty forces.


Earlier, Pentagon sources confirmed a man in an army uniform opened fire Thursday evening inside a military facility at Kabul's international airport, which left three US contractors and an Afghan national dead.
