Kabul, Afghanistan (CNN) — A suicide bombing Saturday at a military base in eastern Afghanistan killed five foreign soldiers, according to the International Security Assistance Force.

The attack, according to an ISAF spokesman, was the worst in some time.

“A suicide bomber blew himself up at FOB (Forward Operating Base) Gamberi in Laghman Province,” the spokesman said. “There is reporting that indicates he (the bomber) was inside the base.”

The spokesman said the attack occurred during a meeting between Afghan soldiers and ISAF mentors.

The Laghman Province base is controlled by the Afghan National Security Forces, the spokesman said.  Please read the entire article here
