(Reuters) - Two explosions and shooting were heard at a U.S. base in the eastern Afghan city of Jalalabad on Sunday, a Reuters witness said.
The Taliban said they carried out an attack on the compound and inflicted casualties. NATO officials were not immediately available for comment.
Security forces surrounded the area.
"We can confirm there have been multiple explosions in the vicinity of the Jalalabad airfield," the U.S.-led coalition said in a statemen.
"Currently, ISAF officials are on the scene gathering facts, and as more information becomes available, we will release it as appropriate."

Might just be a general banging his biographer.
Remember that attack on an airbase where they zapped 4 US aircraft and six of our guys?
They’d repeatedly seen shady people trying to steal fencing at exactly the point they later ended up getting through. But the stupid ROE forbid our guys from FIRING on them.
Cuz stealing fence is not really an ATTACK, right?
But in fact it WAS. Nice, huh?
Maybe if they can getthe homo soldiers out of the shared bunks and send them to find out what happen, we might have a more detailed report soon.
Could be shift change for the Afghan guards inside the camp.
I got stuck
Good friends son is there.
He’s no homo...mofo
I was just making fun of Obama’s new model army plan.
I thought it was sarcastic enough not to need a tag.
My nephew just got back from there. (Praise the Lord) As an MP he said you couldn’t even question a suspicious person on base much less hold them for anything. Don’t get him started on the ROE either.
Bring them home now!
And quarantine the Muslim world.
did our Afghani partners turn on our guys, AGAIN?
I want every last one of our military servicemembers out of there YESTERDAY!!!!!
SJackson - list?
I believe the son of a friend of mine is there as well. He’s a pilot.....prayers for all.
ditto here. Runs supply planes in and out.
Prayers up for our brave soldiers.
I found this.
