Rockets hit Bagram airfield
The rockets fell at around 8pm at the airfield of the Bagram base, provincial police chief, Brig. Gen. Sher Ahmad Muldani, told Pajhwok Afghan News.
The rockets were fired from nearby mountains in the Qarabagh district, he said. There was no immediate comment from the US military about casualties caused by the strike, he added.
"Two rockets hit the Bagram airfield at around 8:30pm," said Mirza, a tribal elder who lives near the base.
His relatives working on the military base told him three Afghan workers and a translator were killed and several others wounded.
Another resident, Shams-ul-Haq, said the entrance to the airbase was closed until 10am. No one was allowed to enter to the site, he added.
The International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) confirmed the incident, but gave no information about casualties.
A Taliban spokesman, Zabihullah Mujahid, said the militants fired two rockets at the base, inflicting casualties on US troops.
