Afghan cop kills five colleagues

Afghan cop kills five colleagues
KABUL, May 19: A local official says a policeman has shot and killed five of his colleagues as they slept in eastern Afghanistan.

Abdul Wahab Momand, district governor, says the policeman turned his rifle on colleagues Thursday night in eastern Nangarhar province at an outpost in the district of Ghanikhil, says an AP story.

Momand says that after the shootings, the attacker, whose name was only given as Nasratullah, collected all the victims’ firearms and fled the scene.

Neither the Taliban nor the Islamic State group - the two militant groups who operate in the area - immediately claimed responsibility.
