Five US soldiers were injured, one seriously, in an attack by a suicide bomber on a US military base in east Afghanistan near the Pakistani border.
Lt. Col. Kenneth Baldowski, spokesman for the Georgia-based 48th Brigade of the Army National Guard unit, confirmed the soldiers were injured though he would not identify the soldiers.
The attack occurred about 400 miles (640 kilometers) northeast of the Taliban town of Marjah in southern Afghanistan which is under siege by US and Afghan troops.
