Militants attack US base in Afghanistan

A group of suicide bombers attacked a US base near the border with Pakistan on Monday morning, leading to multiple explosions, a gunfight and the closure of a key road used by NATO supply trucks, officials said.


The Taliban claimed responsibility for the strike in the Torkham area. In a statement, NATO confirmed "a series of explosions" in the area but said none of its personnel were killed. The military alliance does not release information on any of its troops who may have been wounded. Three suspected Afghan militants have died in the attack. (AP)
