KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — Germany's military says that 15 troops have been wounded in an attack on an Afghan military base, including a German brigadier general. It says one NATO soldiers has been killed.

Germany's military said in a statement that the attack Tuesday happened at Camp Qargha, a base west of the capital, Kabul, which trains officers for the country's army.

The statement said the brigadier general was receiving medical treatment and "is not in a life-threatening condition."

Gen. Mohammmad Zahir Azimi, a spokesman for Afghanistan's Defense Ministry, wrote on Twitter that "a terrorist using (the) uniform of (the) Afghan Army" opened fire on the base, wounding some. He did not elaborate. Afghan officials declined to immediately comment.
