Is the supposed Afghanistan massacre a hoax?

I'm beginning to smell a Daily Mail "Doncaster boys from Hell"-style hoax in the conflicting reports about a supposed massacre in Afghanistan.  Another clue is that it just doesn't seem to fit into reality, what with the shooter covering so much ground in such a short time. What evidence do we have that it really happened?

My initial reaction was that it was intended as a distraction, and it appears that I might have been right about that much, but wrong to assume that something really happened.
