On 5 September 2002, An en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Assassination attempt was made on Hamid Karzai in Kandahar City. Posing as a bodyguard, a gunman wearing the uniform of the new en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Afghan_National_Army opened fire, wounding en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gul_Agha_Sherzai
(former governor of Kandahar) and an American Special Operations
officer. The gunman, one of the President's actual bodyguards, and a
bystander who knocked down the gunman were killed by the attacker, when
Karzai's American bodyguards returned fire. Recently, some pictures of
the en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Naval_Special_Warfare_De responding to the attempt have surfaced. Allegedly one of their members was wounded.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Assassination_attempts_on_Hamid_Karzai#cite_note-1
