At least 45 people died in a brazen attack by the Taliban on a military base in Afghanistan, local officials said Tuesday. According to the Afghan intelligence agency that runs the facility, a suicide bomber rammed an explosives-laden Humvee into the main building on the base, which is located outside the capital of Maidan Wardak province, about 25 miles east of Kabul. The attackers managed to get past security guards who opened fire on the vehicle at the front gate. Four other militants attacked soldiers after the explosion, but all four were killed.
