The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

KABUL: Four Amer­i­cans were killed on Satur­day in a sui­cide bomb­ing in­side the largest US mil­i­tary base in Afghanistan in a ma­jor breach of se­cu­rity, Pen­tagon chief Ash­ton Carter said. The Tal­iban claimed re­spon­si­bil­ity for the bomb­ing in­side the heav­ily for­ti­fied Ba­gram Air­field, north of the cap­i­tal Kabul, which left 16 other US ser­vice mem­bers and a Pol­ish soldier wounded as the in­sur­gents ramp up at­tacks on Western tar­gets. The dead in­cluded two Amer­i­can sol­diers and two con­trac­tors. – AFP
