KABUL, Afghanistan - An Afghan governor says militants wearing vests packed with explosives tried to storm a main U.S. base in eastern Afghanistan.

Arsallah Jamal, the governor of Khost province, says the militants failed to gain entry into Camp Salerno in Khost city, next to Pakistan's border.

The attack started late on Monday evening. Jamal says militant homicide bomb teams were pushed away, and that coalition troops were using airstrikes against the assailants.

He says Afghan troops are reporting militants blowing themselves up before capture.

A U.S. military spokesman confirms the attack and says there are no American casualties.
