U.S. Forces Defuse Motorcycle Bomb Near Afghan Base

U.S. forces have defused a motorcycle bomb near one of their bases on Afghanistan’s border with Pakistan, a U.S. official said on Wednesday. An improvised explosive device made from two anti-tank mines was found under the seat of a motorcycle near a U.S. air base in the eastern region Khost on Tuesday, spokeswoman Alayne Cramer said at Bagram air base, the U.S. headquarters in Afghanistan, north of Kabul. Soldiers defused the radio-controlled device after residents alerted U.S. officials. “I don’t know if residents saw somebody drive up the motorcycle and leave it there, nobody was on it,” Cramer said. She told reporters U.S. forces hunting Osama bin Laden’s al Qaeda network and the former Taliban regime that sheltered the group in Afghanistan found two weapons caches on Tuesday, including one near the Bagram base.
