KABUL - Initial reports suggest that an explosion at the governor's compound in Afghanistan's northern Takhar province on Saturday killed or wounded several NATO troops and members of the Afghan security forces, a spokesman for NATO-led troops said.

"We are aware of reports there has been an attack at the governor's palace in Taloqan, Takhar province," said Major Tim James, spokesman for the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) in Kabul.

"Initial reports indicate there have been a number of ISAF and ANSF (Afghan National Security Force) casualties."
