Taliban attack US base near Pakistan border
Kabul: At least three Taliban militants were killed and one injured when a US forces` supply base in Afghanistan was attacked by the gunmen, an official said.
"Three Taliban armed with suicide jackets, rocket launchers and weapons raided a coalition base in bordering town of Torkham in the eastern province of Nangarhar," the official told Xinhua.
The trio was killed by security forces.
Following the attack, a Taliban spokesman claimed responsibility for the attack.
Shortly after the attack, the Jalalabad-Torkham highway, a key roadway for local and foreign troops and supply convoys, has been blocked.
The base houses foreign forces` vehicles and logistic and supply trucks.
In September and November last year, the Taliban stormed the same base, killing several security forces and destroying more than 80 trucks.
