Suicide Bomb Attack Outside NATO Base In Afghanistan Kills At Least One

December 02, 2011

Afghan officials say a suicide bomber has detonated his explosives-filled vehicle outside a NATO base in eastern Afghanistan, killing at least one and injuring dozens of people.

The Taliban took responsibility for the attack in Logar province on December 2, saying the vehicle was loaded with a ton of explosives.

A spokesman for Logar's provincial governor said an Afghan civilian was killed and at least 60 others injured in the attack.

The NATO-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) said one coalition soldier was wounded. There were no ISAF fatalities.
