Afghanistan: Suicide bomb hits NATO base

A suicide truck bomb attack on a joint NATO-Afghan army base in eastern Afghanistan on Wednesday caused several casualties to Afghan forces, the International Security Assistance Force said.

Reports by Afghan officials of the number of soldiers wounded in the attack -- claimed by Taliban insurgents -- varied from 10 to 45, but there were no reports of any deaths.
"This morning a joint ISAF-ANSF (Afghan National Security Forces) combat outpost in Zurmat district in Paktiya province was attacked by insurgents using a vehicle-borne improvised explosive device and indirect fire," an ISAF spokesman told.
