Afghanistan: 1 killed, 62 wounded in explosion near Bagram airbase

Kabul, Dec 11 (UNI) At least one person was killed and 62 people were wounded after an explosion occurred near Bagram airbase in northern Parwan province on Wednesday morning, local officials said.

The explosion occurred at 6am local time and clashes occurred between foreign troops and attackers close to Bagram airbase after the explosion, Tolo News reported quoting a spokesman for the provincial governor, Wahida Shahkar.

Bagram district governor Abdul Shakoor Qudousi said,'Seven attackers were engaged with security forces' and that 'four vehicles holding explosives were used and two detonated.'

He added that 'the attackers were hidden in a non-active hospital building and clashed with security forces.'

'The target was Bagram airbase,' he added.

Resolute Support, the NATO-led mission in Afghanistan, in a statement said, 'Enemy Forces conducted an attack on Bagram airfield this morning, targeting a medical facility being constructed to help the Afghan people who live near the base.'

'The attack was quickly contained and repelled by our ANDSF and Coalition partners, but the future medical facility was badly damaged,' the statement said, adding that 'there were no US and Coalition casualties and Bagram remained secure throughout the attack.'

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack.
