Security tightened at NATO airfield in Kandahar

Insurgents have launched three major attacks in six days

by

After ground attacks Saturday night against NATO’s largest military base in Southern Afghanistan, the International Security Assistance Force is stepping up security on the airfield base. Although no one was killed in the four-hour attack, civilians and soldiers were injured as insurgents attempted to break through the northern perimeter. The insurgents have increased their efforts, this being the third major assault on a NATO base in six days, and ground attacks such as this have been very rare.
