A suicide bomber exploded himself in front of the entrance for military air base in the Afghan capital Kabul Tuesday morning, casualties feared, sources said.

An official with the Interior Ministry, who is reluctant to be named, told Xinhua that one suicide bomber drove an explosive-laden car and blew himself up near the gate of military airport, adjoining the civilian one, in eastern Kabul.

The official said there might be some casualties but it is too early to tell the number.

Meanwhile, a local TV TOLO said the car with explosive material was not detonated completely and troops and ambulances have been sent to the scene.
