  • One dead, scores injured in attack on Bagram base in Afghanistan
Sharjah24 – Reuters: Suicide blasts in Afghanistan on Wednesday (December 11) killed one person and injured more than 60 in an attack on the United States' main military base of Bagram that was repulsed after a 30-minute clash, Afghan and NATO officials said.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility for Wednesday's blast, but a provincial official said the casualties were all Afghans.

Two attackers detonated vehicles laden with explosives at the southern entrance to the base, while five opened fire. It was not immediately clear how many of the five gunmen were killed, a spokeswoman for the governor of Parwan said.
