Eight Afghan guards of United States base shot dead by Gunmen

Gunmen have killed eight Afghan guards working at the largest American base in Afghanistan, officials said Tuesday, as the U.S. appears set to boost its troop presence in the country.

"They were all local residents serving as guards at Bagram", said district governor Abdul Shakoor Quddusi, adding that they were riding back home in a convoy when attacked.

Wahida Shahkar said the guards were attacked on their way to work at Bagram airfield, the main USA military base in Afghanistan. No one immediately claimed responsibility for the bombing.

Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said the group had carried out the attack, which occurred about an hour before midnight on Monday in a village near the base.

Shahkar said the shooting is being investigated further.

The US is expected to increase military deployment in the country to help Afghan forces contain the Taliban's rising offensive.

Afghanistan's Chief Executive Abdullah Abdullah has hailed Iran's efforts to host Afghan refugees over the past three decades.

Tensions have been high in Kabul since a truck bomb on May 31 killed more than 150 people and wounded at least 300 - the deadliest attack in the Afghan capital since the ouster of the Taliban following the US -led invasion in 2001. Since then, scores of protesters have spent nearly three weeks under huge tents on a road near the presidential palace and the blast site, as well as in other parts of the city.

Authorities in Kabul have demolished a tent erected to protest insecurity in the Afghan capital, sparking street clashes that left at least one demonstrator dead.

Afghan officials said eight guards were killed and two wounded. A statement from the group said 11 others were arrested.
