Four Amer­i­cans killed in Afghan blast

The Myanmar Times - - World -

Four Amer­i­cans were killed in a huge ex­plo­sion in­side the largest US mil­i­tary base in Afghanistan, US Sec­re­tary of De­fense Ash Carter said. The Amer­i­cans – two ser­vice­men and two con­trac­tors – were killed at Ba­gram Air­field by “an ap­par­ent sui­cide bomber”, Mr Carter said, adding that the ex­plo­sion wounded 16 other US ser­vice­mem­bers and a Pol­ish soldier par­tic­i­pat­ing in US-led NATO mil­i­tary op­er­a­tions. Mr Carter said he was “deeply sad­dened” to learn of the news, and ex­pressed his “sin­cere con­do­lences” to the fam­i­lies of the fallen.
