Dave Butler, a spokesman for US Forces-Afghanistan, initially said that three Americans were wounded in the attack that claimed the life of Gen. Abdul Raziq Achakzai, one of the most prominent security figures in Afghanistan, before later issuing a statement clarifying that one of the wounded was a coalition contractor.

We are waking up to some patchy fog this Monday morning. The weather does quiet down to begin the work week but temperatures will be heating up as we go into Monday and Tuesday.
