U.S. general killed, other troops wounded in Afghanistan attack, Pentagon says

The Pentagon did not formally release the name of the slain general, but U.S. officials identified him to CNN as Maj. Gen. Harold Greene.

Pentagon spokesman Rear Adm. John Kirby declined to identify the general, citing a policy of waiting 24 hours after the family is notified, but described him as a "very experienced officer" with "a lot of staff tours" and an "expert in infrastructure improvement, logistics."
