In Washington, the U.S.- Africa Summit continues. President Obama will kick off the last day of the summit engaging in dialogue with African leaders addressing a number of hot topics, including peace and regional stability and investing in Africa’s future.

On Tuesday, two-star U.S. Army Major General Harold Greene was gunned down – the highest-ranking American casualty in the Afghan war – and 14 other coalition troops injured in an “insider attack” in Kabul.

ABC’s Ann Compton has more on the administration’s response as well as any new details in the motive and circumstances surrounding the attack.

Lew said on Tuesday.
