A suicide attack targeting a NATO-Afghan border police compound in eastern Afghanistan killed two foreign soldiers and wounded several others, the military alliance said Wednesday.

The attack took place late Tuesday in Khost, the same province where a Jordanian doctor turned Al-Qaeda double agent blew himself up in December killing seven CIA employees.

"Initial reports indicate a suicide bomber detonated himself killing two ISAF service members and injuring several others," the NATO-run International Security Assistance Force said in a statement.

The nationalities of the soldiers were not released.

The suicide attack on December 30 at a US military base in Khost, near the Pakistani border, killed seven CIA employees and the bomber's Jordanian handler in the deadliest attack on the US spy agency in 26 years.
