KHOST, Afghanistan - A suicide car bomb killed 33 people and wounded 10 in southeastern Afghanistan, close to a U.S. base that was formerly used by the CIA, police said on Sunday.
The attack took place close to a checkpoint on the outskirts of the city of Khost, provincial police chief Faizullah Ghairat said.
At least 12 of those killed were children, according to the United Nations. Most of the casualties were civilians.
The U.S. military said none of its personnel were hurt. The base at Camp Chapman was once used by the CIA to help oversee strikes against militants. It was unclear whether the intelligence agency still operated there.
