MSNBC: 3 Service Members Killed in Attack at US Base in Afghanistan

‘At least three U.S. Service members were killed and one contractor was also killed’

EXCERPT:

KUBE: "We know this was a catastrophic vehicle-borne IED. What that means is an explosion in a vehicle. It was just outside of Bagram Air Base as you mentioned, which is not too far outside of Kabul, the capitol. We know that at least three U.S. service members were killed and one contractor was also killed, we don’t know the nationality of that individual, and three more service members were wounded in this attack. It happened earlier today outside of Bagram. You know, this comes at a very critical time right now for the U.S. and for the Afghan government. The U.S. special envoys Zalmay Khalilzad is engaged in these intense negotiations with the Taliban, trying to bring the Afghan government into this as well to negotiate some sort of a peace settlement in that country, which has been torn apart by war for nearly two decades now, Katy."
