Suicide bombers targeted a joint U.S.-Afghan military base in eastern Afghanistan on Sunday, killing at least 5, according to reports.

The attack, which officials described as “complex” took the lives of three Afghan soldiers and two civilians at Forward Operating Base Fenty, NATO command said.

There were no immediate reports of American casualties in the assault.

This latest attack comes as Washington and Kabul work to hand over responsibility for security to Afghan forces in 2014, as U.S. and NATO combat forces leave the country.
