KABUL: An Afghan policewoman killed an American adviser at the Kabul police headquarters, an Afghan police official said.

Kabul's Deputy Police Chief Mohammad Daoud Amin said an investigation was underway to determine whether the killing Monday was intentional or accidental.

It was not known whether the victim was a military or civilian adviser.

The Nato military command said it was looking into reports of the shooting but had no independent information.

At least 53 international troops have been killed by Afghan soldiers or police this year, and a number of other assaults are still under investigations.

Nato forces, due to mostly withdraw from the country by 2014, have speeded up efforts to train and advise Afghan military and police units before the pullout.

Well, there is a lesson to be learned that it is impossible to bend the will of people. It people are not willing to work and obey the foreign rule now matter good the lessons or training is. Afghans are fiercely independent minded people and this is just another display of that state of mind. Peace on earth.

Generally ,when a woman kills a man it is for protecting the honour and dignity.The NATO high command must properly train their people about the life style and traditions of Afghanistan if they really want to win their mind and heart..

What kind of expression of independence it is, when you murder the person who is training you to protect your own people? May be, they do not want to be obedient-- of law, of the trainers, and only God knows what. There are plenty of good things in life which you acquire, only when you do, what you are asked. The real motivation for doing that is, trusting the person or persons, that they mean no harm, which it seems, is being suspected for no good reason.
