Kabul, Afghanistan: Afghan officials say two suicide attackers have blown themselves up near a Nato base in the country’s east, killing at least 12 people and wounding more than 50.
Shahidullah Shadid, a spokesman for the Wardak provincial governor, says the attack took place at dawn Saturday in the province’s Sayed Abad district.
12 were killed in fresh suicide attacks in Afghanistan.
He says one suicide bomber with a vest rigged with explosives blew himself up outside a compound housing the district governor’s office, while another in a fuel tanker detonated his bomb on a road separating the compound from a Nato base.
Shahid says the dead include eight civilians and four Afghan police. He says no Nato troops were killed, but two were lightly wounded.
There was no immediate Nato comment.
