One dead in Kandahar attack

From IJC Public Affairs in Afghanistan:

“We can confirm that enemy forces attacked an ISAF base in southern Afghanistan today. As a result, one ISAF service member was killed. All other ISAF personnel are accounted for. This was a complex attack with a suicide vehicle-borne improvised explosive device, enemy forces with suicide vests and small arms fire. Operational reports state there was moderate damage to the outer perimeter of the base; however, the base is currently secured and all enemy forces were killed as a result of the attack. ISAF officials are still assessing the incident. Updated information will be released as appropriate.”
