Kabul: At least five Taliban militants wearing suicide vests on Sunday stormed a main NATO base in Jalalabad, capital of the eastern Afghan province of Nangarhar, media reported.

Two explosions rocked the city, 120 km east of Kabul, around 6 a.m.

"Initially there was a car bomb attack hitting the main gate of the base at 6 a.m. and there might be casualties," police said.

There were no reports available about the casualties. Government troops immediately cordoned off the area. Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid claimed responsibility for the attack.
