Afghan pilot in Kabul airport shooting

Eight foreign troops and a contractor have been killed by an Afghan air force pilot at Kabul airport in an apparent argument, Nato says.

According to the Afghan defence ministry, the incident took place at a facility used by the Afghan air force at about 1100 local time (0630 GMT). The pilot was also killed in the exchange.

The incident is the deadliest of a number of recent attacks on foreigners by Afghan security personnel. Quentin Sommerville reports from Kabul.
