TIRINKOT (PAN): A suicide bomber on Monday detonated his explosive-rigged motorcycle near a foreign military base in the central province of Uruzgan, officials said.

The explosion took place around noon near a military base of the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) in Choora district, police spokesman Farid Aiel told Pajhwok Afghan News.

However, crime branch head Col. Gulab Khan said three ISAFinfo-icon soldiers and a policeman were wounded in the suicide bombing of a convoy of NATOinfo-icon-led soldiers.

As soon as the convoy came out of the main bazaar in Tirinkot, the bomber attacked it, witness Syed Ahmad said. Afghan and foreign forces cordoned off the area after the explosion.

"ISAF reports indicate that a suicide bomber attempted an attack on an ISAF patrol in Choora district today.  The attacker was killed. However,there were no ISAF fatalities reported," the NATO-led force told Pajhwok Afghan News.
