KABUL, Afghanistan — A group of would-be suicide bombers tried to storm a major NATO base in eastern Afghanistan early Saturday but were repelled before they could enter, officials said.

A bomb hidden in a motorbike also exploded on a busy street in the Imam Sahib district of the northern province of Kunduz, killing 10 people, including a police commander and three children, according to the Interior Ministry.

Separately, NATO reported that insurgents killed three coalition service members Saturday in an attack in southern Afghanistan. The coalition did not provide any further details or the nationalities of the service members killed.
