KABUL (Reuters) - Three Americans were killed on Thursday when a security guard opened fire at an international hospital in the Afghan capital Kabul, the U.S. embassy said, in the latest of a series of attacks against foreign civilians in the country.

"We can confirm three Americans were killed," said an embassy official, without providing further details. An interior ministry official said at least one other person, a female nurse, was wounded.
