Suicide bomber, insurgents attack Afghan company

Suicide bomber, insurgents attack Afghan company

An Afghan official says a suicide bomber has struck a private construction company in the western province of Herat, and security forces are battling other insurgents who managed to enter the compound.
Herat governor's spokesman Muhiudin Noori says the suicide bombing occurred about 10 a.m. on Thursday in the provincial capital's Guzra district. He says initial reports indicate one guard was wounded.
Noori says Afghan security forces are battling at least two other insurgents who burst into the compound housing the private construction company after the bombing.
Noori did not identify the company, which is located along a main road leading to the province's main airport _ a route often taken by NATO and Afghan forces.
