Suicide Bomb Hit, Killed CIA

Eight Americans were killed in a suicide bomb attack on a military base in eastern Afghanistan, according to a senior U.S. official. The Americans, who were not from the military, are thought to have been working for the CIA, and were killed when the bomber, wearing an explosive vest, walked into either the base's gym or dining facility. Four Canadian soldiers and a reporter from the Calgary Herald were also killed after hitting a roadside bomb in southern Afghanistan, the most Canadians killed in a single incident since July 2007.
