Eight Afghan security guards killed in attack at Bagram military base

Eight Afghan security guards were killed and two others wounded in an attack on the Bagram military base at Shah Kah village, about 40km from Kabul, on Monday night.

"#Bagram - 10 Afghan security guards from Bagram military base attacked in Shah Kah Village last night. 8 killed, 2 wounded," tweeted Tolo news.

Further details are yet to emerge.

This is yet another attack targeting the Afghan military base, as there have been a recent spate of such incidents.

In April, Taliban attackers, disguised in military uniforms, carried out one of the deadliest attacks on Afghan security forces as they killed around 150 soldiers at a military base in Mazar-i-Sharif.

Last week, an Afghan soldier attacked US troops at Camp Shaheen, in Mazar-e Sharif, injuring seven.
