One American was killed in the attack, and 15 more were injured, among them a German brigadier general and "about a dozen" Americans, authorities said. NATO said it was investigating an "incident" involving both Afghan and international troops at Camp Qargha, a base west of the capital, Kabul, which trains officers for the country's army.
