Car bomb goes off near U.S. base in Afghanistan, fatalities reported

File-Forward_Operating_Base_Logar_AfghanistanReports from Khost, Afghanistan have raised the number of fatalities to 25 in the aftermath of a suicide car bombing at a U.S. facility.

Reports are coming in that the target of a suicide car bomb was forward operating base Chapman – the same facility where 7 CIA contractors and 2 others were killed in 2009 by a suicide bomber.

All of the dead are now thought to be Afghans, several were children.

Camp Chapman is situated in Khost province, Afghanistan, on an airstrip about 2 miles east of the city of Khost. The facility is home to CIA operators that work intelligence from drone flights and the CIA’s Special Activities Division.
