S. Korean base targeted in Afghanistan
South Korea's provincial reconstruction team base in northern Afghanistan has been targeted by militants' rockets, the foreign ministry and Afghanistan's local police say, Press TV reported.
According to the South Korean Foreign Ministry, two rocket-propelled grenades fell near the base of South Korean aid workers at 1:44 a.m. Friday (Korean time) in the northern Afghan city of Charika.
Local police say no casualties were reported, a Press TV correspondent reported.
The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack and said the rockets had hit the facility.
The site had come under two more similar attacks in the past, one in June last year and the other in January, though none were hurt in the attacks.
In 2007 Taliban militants had taken hostage 23 South Korean nationals and killed two of them but set the others free after an agreement with the South Korean government to withdraw its troops from Afghanistan.
