An Afghan official says a foreign woman working for the International Committee of the Red Cross has been shot and killed by a patient at an orthopedic clinic in northern Afghanistan. It was not immediately clear if today's attack was politically motivated or related to a personal dispute. Sher Jan Durani, a spokesman for the provincial police chief, says the shooting took place in the clinic in the city of Mazar-e-Sharif.
Durani says the attacker and another suspect have been arrested. ICRC spokesman Ahmad Ramin Ayaz confirmed the attack, but could not provide further details.
