Ten civilians and two police were killed in a twin suicide bomb attack on Saturday targeting a US-led military base in central Afghanistan, police said.

The first bombing was carried out by a militant on foot, followed by a massive blast from a truck bomb that destroyed much of a local bazaar near the military outpost in Wardak province's Sayedabad district, police said.

"The number of wounded is so high that it can hardly be counted. Lots of people have been wounded and much of the Sayedabad bazaar has been destroyed," police spokesman Abdul Wali told AFP.
