A spokesman with the International Security Assistance Force said that three contractors working with the international coalition in Afghanistan and an Afghan national were killed Thursday in a shootout on the military side of a Kabul airport. Reuters reported that the contractors were American. ISAF spokesman U.S. Air Force Capt. Frank Hartnett confirmed the deaths but did not confirm the nationalities of the three contractors. An Afghan security official, however, said the contractors were American instructors who were shot dead by an Afghan security guard.

The Afghan security official, who works on the civilian side of the airport, said that the assailant was immediately shot dead. http://feeds.nbcnews.com/c/35002/f/663303/s/42d88913/sc/8/l/0L0Snbcnews0N0Cnews0Cworld0Cafghan0Eguard0Ekills0Ethree0Econtractors0Eafghan0Enational0Ekabul0Eairport0En296316/story01.htm http://www.wochit.com
