Suicide Car Bombing at US Military Base in Afghanistan


A suicide car bombing at a US military base near a flashpoint city in eastern Afghanistan killed at least three Afghans and and wounded seven others on Wednesday, officials said. The blast, powerful enough to rattle windows four kilometres (two miles) away, took place at the entrance to Forward Operating Base Chapman in Khost. It came two days after an Afghan policewoman shot dead a US NATO adviser inside Kabul police headquarters, the latest "insider" attack by a member of Afghanistan's security forces on their foreign allies.
