The Taliban fired a series of missiles into a U.S. base in Afghanistan late Thursday but caused no injuries among the soldiers or personnel at the base, an Afghan official said. There was no immediate confirmation of the attack from Washington. According to Massum Farzahee, the police chief of Bagram district in Parwan province, attackers fired four missiles around 9 p.m., targeting the Bagram Air Base, located about 50 kilometers (30 miles) northeast of the Afghan capital, Kabul. Three rockets hit inside the base, the police chief said, but no one was harmed.
