A man wearing a suicide vest killed at least four people inside the largest NATO military base in Afghanistan early Saturday, a senior U.S. military official told NBC News.
Around 14 others were injured in the attack on Bagram Airfield, according to a statement released by the NATO mission in Afghanistan.
The attack occurred around 5:30 a.m. local time as people were gathering for a post-Veterans Day fun run.
There was no immediate word on the identities of the victims.
The suicide bomber chose the time and location because he "was looking for an opportunity to do the most damage," the official added.
"To the family and friends of those who lost their lives today, we share your loss and our thoughts are with you," U.S. Army General John W. Nicholson said in the statement. "We offer you our deepest condolences. For the family and friends of those wounded in today's attack, let me assure you they are receiving the best care possible, and we will keep them in our thoughts today."
The base was put on lockdown following the attack.
Bagram Airfield features several layers of security, including retinal scans. It was unclear how someone got into the base with a suicide vest.
