US Vice President unhurt in suicide attack

Bureau Report | February 27, 2007 21:03 IST

A suicide bomber blew himself up on Tuesday outside a military base in Afghanistan where US Vice President Dick Cheney was visiting killing at least 2 people. Cheney was unhurt.

Bad weather had forced Cheney to stay overnight at the base during a surprise visit for talks on the fight against Al Qaeda and the Taliban.

The attack occurred inside one of the security gates surrounding the heavily guarded base some 60 km north of Kabul.
