At least one person was killed and dozens more injured in Parwan Province on Wednesday, after a suicide bombing attack hit an under-construction medical facility near the US Bagram airbase.

According to Afghan Army Commander Alozai Ahmadi, there were no casualties among the US or coalition forces. However, he said that "at least 50 civilians, including women and children, were wounded and taken to a local hospital."

The blast, which took place in front of the gate of the medical facility, was "contained and repelled," NATO's Resolute Support mission said in a statement.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for Wednesday's attack.
