Cheney OK after Afghan Blast; 14 killed

By ALISA TANG, Associated Press Writer 15 minutes ago

BAGRAM, Afghanistan - A suicide bomber attacked the entrance to the main U.S. military base in
Afghanistan Tuesday during a visit by Vice President
Dick Cheney, killing at least 14 people and wounding a dozen more. The Taliban claimed responsibility and said Cheney was the target.


Cheney's spokeswoman said he was fine, and the vice president later met with President Hamid Karzai in the capital, Kabul, before leaving the country.

There were conflicting reports on the death toll. Provincial Gov. Abdul Jabar Taqwa said 20 people were killed, while
NATO said initial reports indicated three fatalities, including a U.S. soldier, a South Korean coalition soldier and a U.S. government contractor whose nationality wasn't immediately known. NATO said 27 people also were wounded.

It was unclear why there was such a large discrepancy in the reports.
