Suicide attackers detonated bombs and fired rockets outside a major US base in Afghanistan, with 12 bodies later found near a gate.
Local police officials said a dozen bodies in Afghan police and military uniforms - which may have been Taliban disguises - were scattered around the entrance of the airfield in the eastern city of Jalalabad.
A Taliban spokesman said the militant group had launched the assault at 6:00am local time.
