    KABUL, Afghanistan – A Taliban suicide bomber detonated a large vehicle-borne improvised explosive device at the entrance of Combat Outpost Sayed Abad, Wardak province, Sept. 10.

    The driver, whose truck was carrying firewood, detonated his explosives at the outpost’s Entry Control Point.

    Most of the force of the explosion was absorbed by the protective barrier at the outpost entrance and though there were a significant number of injuries. All are being treated and none is immediately life threatening.

    The explosion damaged the compound entrance and was not followed-up by any subsequent attacks. The impact to the compound is readily repairable and operations are continuing.
