At Least Three US Soldiers Wounded After Afghan Base Attack

"Two other attackers are still clashing with security forces", the official added.

One of the explosions was so strong it shattered windows up to 2 kilometers (1.2 miles) from the attack site, said Abdullah Hsrat, spokesman for the provincial governor. Nasratullah Jamshidi, said the attacker, an Afghan commando, had been shot at the scene and died on his way to a hospital.

His description of the assault suggested a well-prepared and coordinated assault. He said reports claiming the soldiers had been killed were false.

Afghan security forces inspect the aftermath of a suicide bomb blast in Paktia Province, Afghanistan June 18, 2017. Taliban-led insurgency has been on the rampage since late April when the Taliban launched their annual rebel offensive and intensified attacks across the country.

Eyewitness describes aftermath of London mosque attack
An AFP reporter could see a helicopter and several emergency vehicles at the scene, which was closed off by a wide police cordon. The incident occurred in North London outside of the Muslim Welfare House , which is located near the Finsbury Park Mosque .

The report says since 2007, insider attacks have killed 157 North Atlantic Treaty Organisation personnel and 557 members of the Afghan National Defense and Security Forces.

If confirmed as an incident among joint forces, it would mark the second time in a week that members of allied Afghan troops opened fire on US counterparts.

Dillon C. Baldridge, 22 of Youngsville, North Carolina - were killed June 10 when an Afghan soldier opened fire on them in Peka Valley, located in Nangarhar province.

Five civilians were among the wounded. Local journalists say the attack is not over as yet.

Valeant Pharmaceuticals adds prominent US investor John Paulson to board
The institutional investor owned 261,532 shares of the specialty pharmaceutical company's stock at the end of the first quarter. George Kaiser Family Foundation holds 0.13% of its portfolio in Valeant Pharmaceuticals Intl Inc (TSE:VRX) for 29,382 shares.

It comes a week after an Afghan army commando shot dead three USA special forces soldiers in eastern Afghanistan.

He said five members of the police were killed, although Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid claimed scores of police lost their lives in the attack.

The man who attacked Camp Shaheen, the Afghan military base, was wearing an Afghan military uniform, the second such attack in the country in a week. The foreign ministry did not speculate who may be behind the disappearances but various Afghan Islamist groups have targeted diplomats in the past.

May heckled as London fire toll hits 30
However, as many have pointed out, 91-year-old Queen Elizabeth II managed to visit with some of the people affected overnight. Amongst the dead was artist Khadija Saye, whose photography is now being exhibited at the Vienna Biennale.
