U.S. Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta and other U.S. officials say the shooting spree should not derail the U.S. and NATO strategy of a gradual withdrawal of troops by the end of 2014.

The attack occurred at an Army base in the country’s Helmand province. The attacker was killed by coalition forces. In Paktika province, another soldier was killed by an "alleged member of the Afghan local police" as members of the International Security Assistance Force neared a police checkpoint. No further information about that soldier's nationality was given.
