Armed militants in northeastern Afghanistan have detonated explosives in
an attempt to blast their way onto a U.S.-run base.
A provincial police spokesman says four suicide bombers targeted the base
of the U.S. Provincial Reconstruction Team in an attack early Saturday
morning in Panjshir province. The spokesman says three of the militants
attacked on foot, while the other detonated an explosive-filled vehicle.
The Taliban has claimed responsibility for the attack, which left the
four militants dead and two security guards wounded. A NATO spokesman
confirmed the incident and said there were no foreign casualties. Some
information for this report was provided by AP, AFP and Reuters.
