      Suicide Assailant Attacks CIA Base in Afghanistan

      Washington, Dec 31 (Prensa Latina) A suicide assailant infiltrated a
      Central Intelligence Base of United States in Afghanistan, stagging
      the most deadly attack to the US espionage in this Central Asian
      nation, reported The Washington Post Thursday.

      The newspaper highlighted how the man easily escaped the surveillance
      and managed to penetrate Chapman Base boundaries, in the Khost
      western province, to fight Talibans in the border with Pakistan.

      According to the newspaper, US sources confirmed that most of the 8
      deceased and an undetermined number of wounded, may be all, were
      agents and CIA contractors, adding at least one Afghan civilian.

      One behalf of the group one Taliban spokesman claimed responsibility
      for the attack and in a message to the media said that the assailant
      was an officer of the Afghan National Army dressing a suicide vest.

      Although many details of the attack are still vague a CIA top rank
      officer told the Post that it was the biggest attacks received by the
      secret service since April 1983's attack to the embassy in Beirut
      that also killed 8 CIA agents.
