A village girl huddles near her home after an attack on Forward Operating Base Thunder, one of three bases insurgents attacked in eastern Afghanistan Sept. 24. One Afghan security contractor and five insurgents were killed when a squad-sized element of insurgents attacked three bases near Gardez, Paktya province. At least two others were injured. The attack began when insurgents opened fire on the FOB Goode (Gardez) entry control point with AK-47 rifles at about noon. One insurgent was killed and a truck belonging to a respected village elder was hit by a rocket-propelled grenade and set aflame in this initial attack.
