Shots not intended for Afghanistan Minister, as previously was believed

Soldiers who fired at the defense minister's convoy were not trying to assassinate him, as initially believed, but were shooting at other troops they were angry with, a government spokesman said Sun.

Shots were fired at the convoy Saturday after it had dropped Defense Minister Rahim Wardak and some other Cabinet members at Kabul's airport. One bullet hit a seat in Wardak's car where he had been sitting moments earlier.

Defense Ministry spokesman Gen. Mohammed Saher Azimi initially said the shooting had been an attempt on the minister's life, but yesterday he said an investigation had found that assessment was wrong.
