KABUL, Afghanistan  — NATO reported on Saturday that insurgents tried to storm a combat outpost in eastern Afghanistan, setting off a battle that killed 30 attackers and wounded five coalition soldiers.

Assailants struck the military post from all sides using small arms, rocket-propelled grenades and mortars. The outpost is in Paktika province's Bermal district. Nearly all NATO forces in the province are from the US military.

NATO said coalition forces called in close air-support and airstrikes to help repel the 1:30 a.m. attack.
