Two explosions, including a suspected suicide bombing, hit outside the key US military base in Afghanistan on Wednesday but it was not immediately clear if there were any casualties, a US military official said.

An apparent blast from a car was followed seconds later by a suicide bomber on foot who detonated himself outside the main gate of Bagram air base, about 60 km (40 miles) north of Kabul, the military official said.
