and a U.S. military base in Kabul has killed two U.S. service

The Taliban claimed responsibility and said the bomber targeted
German military personnel.
The German Embassy shares a small, two-lane road with Camp
Eggers, a U.S. base that serves as the headquarters for soldiers
training Afghan police and army personnel. Dozens of armed Afghan
security personnel guard the street, and blast walls of concrete
and sand-filled mesh-wire boxes line the road.
