Two suicide blasts hit Afghan Bagram Airbase

KABUL: A suicide bomber struck an under-construction medical facility in Bagram, the largest U.S. military base in northern Afghanistan, Wednesday morning, with the Taliban claiming responsibility for the attack, Afghan and U.S. officials said.

Two car bombs were involved in the attack, which was followed by a gun battle between the attackers and local security forces, killing at least one person and injuring at least 65 more, according to the Bagram district governor.

There were no casualties to U.S. and coalition forces, according to U.S. military officials.

The Taliban have now claimed responsibility for the attack.
