KABUL, AFGHANISTAN - NATO says 77 U.S. troops were wounded in a suicide attack against American base in eastern Afghanistan.
NATO said says that the Taliban truck bomb that exploded late Saturday at the gate of the American base in eastern Afghanistan also wounded 25 Afghan civilians. Spokesman Maj. Russell Fox said Sunday that all the international troops at the combat outpost are American.
Officials say the massive blast killed at least two Afghan civilians, including a three-year-old girl. NATO says no foreign forces were killed in the attack on Combat Outpost Sayed Abad in Wardak province.
Meanwhile, two separate roadside bombings have killed 10 Afghan civilians, including two children, near the border with Pakistan.
