Taliban suicide bombers strike NATO trucks in eastern Afghanistan, trigger gunbattle

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Thursday, June 19, 2014 12:56 AM EDT
KABUL, Afghanistan


Afghan officials say three Taliban suicide bombers targeted NATO fuel trucks at the border with Pakistan, setting off a gunbattle with police guards.

A spokesman for the border police in eastern Nangarhar province, Idris Momand, says the attack took place early on Thursday at the parking lot of the NATO outpost near the Torkham border crossing, a key supply route for the alliance.

Ahmad Zia Abdulzai, the spokesman for the provincial governor, says two of the attackers were killed by police while one blew himself up in the attack.

Abdulzai says 37 NATO fuel trucks were destroyed by explosions set off during the gunbattle.

Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid says his group was behind the attack.

Most NATO cargo shipments go through the Torkham crossing, toward Pakistan's port city of Karachi.
