    Nato's International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) said it was aware of an explosion near a military base but did not know how many casualties there were.

    Isaf also said the blast was caused by a land mine.

    Amir Mohammad, a police officer, said it was not clear if the mine was recently planted or if it was an old one.
