Panetta says Afghan suicide bomber kills American soldier, 2 civilians

Defense Secretary Leon Panetta says a suicide car bomber that attacked the Kandahar Air Base in Afghanistan killed an American soldier, two Afghan civilians and wounded three others.
Taliban spokesman Qari Jusuf Ahmedi claimed responsibility for the attack in an email, saying a suicide car bomber had targeted foreign military vehicles that were stopped near the gate of Kandahar Airfield.
It was unclear if the attack had anything to do with Panetta's unannounced visit to Kandahar Airfield. Kandahar is a huge and sprawling facility that houses more than 20,000 service members from 20 countries and has more than 11,000 civilian contract workers.
Javeed Faisal, who is a spokesman for the provincial governor, said the attack took place just after nightfall Thursday.
