Afghan officials said two suicide attackers blew themselves up near a NATO base in the country’s east, killing at least 12 people and wounding more than 50.

Shahidullah Shadid, a spokesman for the Wardak provincial governor, said the attack took place at dawn on Saturday in the province’s Sayed Abad district.

Shahid said the dead include eight civilians and four Afghan police. He said no NATO troops were killed, but two were lightly wounded.
