Kabul, Dec 26 (IANS) At least four people were killed Wednesday when a suicide bomber drove a minibus packed with explosive into a NATO military base in Aghanistan's Khost province, said officials.

Kabul, Dec 26 — At least four people were killed Wednesday when a suicide bomber drove a minibus packed with explosive into a NATO military base in Aghanistan's Khost province, said officials.

"A militant driving an explosive-laden minibus tried to approach the eastern entrance of Khost airport where the military base is located but the attacker set off the explosive after being intercepted by the police," provincial police chief Abdul Qayum Baqizai was quoted by media as saying.

He said a policeman, two civilians and the bomber were killed in the attack which took place in the provincial capital of Khost city around 8 a.m., reported Xinhua.

A security official said seven people were also wounded in the explosion.

"...this morning insurgents detonated a vehicle-borne Improvised Explosive Device (IED) in the vicinity of a coalition base named Camp Chapman in Khost province," a spokesman with the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) told Xinhua.

The Taliban has claimed responsibility for the attack.
