Kabul: Afghan and NATO officials say a suicide bomber detonated a truck full of explosives outside a combat outpost in eastern Afghanistan, killing one person and wounding five people.

The police chief in Logar province, Gen Ghulam Saki Rooghlawanay, says the bomber tried to enter a base used by Afghan and NATO forces in Mohammad Agha district.

Rooghlawanay says that when the bomber was not allowed onto the base, he drove toward nearby government buildings, a clinic and a youth center, which was heavily damaged in the Friday morning blast.

The police chief says an Afghan businessman was killed. Three Afghan soldiers and two Afghan intelligence employees were wounded.

NATO says no coalition service members were killed in the attack.
