"One of the bases of NATO-led forces caught fire in Kunar province at 08:30 a.m. local time but the fire has been extinguished," Ziae told Xinhua without giving more details. Meantime, a local official on the condition of anonymity said that two rockets slammed into a military base outside provincial capital Assadabad. A Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid in talks with media via telephone from undisclosed location said that the insurgents loyal to Taliban attacked NATO-led forces base in Assadabad with heavy weapons and inflicting casualties.
