Two suicide attackers have blown themselves up near a Nato base in eastern Afghanistan, killing at least 12 people and wounding more than 50, local officials said.
Shahidullah Shadid, a spokesman for the Wardak provincial governor, said the attack took place at dawn today in the province's Sayed Abad district.
He said one suicide bomber with a vest rigged with explosives blew himself up outside a compound housing the district governor's office, while another in a fuel tanker detonated his bomb on a road separating the compound from a Nato base.
Mr Shahid said the dead include eight civilians and four Afghan police.
No Nato troops were killed but two suffered minor injuries.
There was no immediate Nato comment.
