Afghan officials say bomb blasts have killed at least three civilians and wounded dozens more.
The country's Interior Ministry said one person died when a bomb strapped to a wheelbarrow exploded in the eastern city of Jalalabad near a NATO military base today.
NATO said the Taliban had attacked the base early on November 13 in a skirmish that reportedly left eight militants dead.
In the southern province of Kandahar, which borders Pakistan, provincial government spokesman Zalmai Ayoubi said a motorcycle bomb attack today killed another two people.
The United Nations says the number of Afghan civilians killed rose by a third in early 2010 to a total of 1,271.
