KABUL, Sept. 11 (Xinhua) -- Two Afghan civilians were killed and 102 personnel of NATO-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) and Afghan civilians injured when a suicide car bomb went off in Afghanistan's central Wardak province on Saturday, ISAF said in a statement on Sunday.
"Two Afghan civilians were killed and a significant number of ISAF and Afghan civilians were injured as a result of the Vehicle Born Improvised Explosive Device (IED) attack at approx 5:30 p.m. at Combat Outpost Sayed Abad, Wardak province, yesterday," the statement said.
"Seventy-seven ISAF personnel and less than 25 Afghan civilians have received non-life-threatening injuries. The majority of injured ISAF personnel will likely return to duties shortly," the statement said.
The injured personnel were evacuated to medical facilities throughout the area or were treated on scene, it said.
Earlier Sunday, a separate ISAF statement without giving more details said a Taliban suicide bomber detonated a large vehicle- borne IED at the entrance of Combat Outpost Sayed Abad.
"The driver, whose truck was carrying firewood, detonated his explosives at the outpost's Entry Control Point,"
The statement did not provide details on the nationality of the injured ISAF personnel.
However, troops mostly from the Untied States and Turkey, under the command of ISAF's Regional Command-East, are stationed in Wardak province.
According to the statement, the combat outpost remains operational and protective barriers have been repaired after the failed attempt by insurgents to degrade operational capabilities and cause loss of life to coalition troops.
Taliban insurgents in their internet website claimed responsibility for the attack which occurred on the eve of 10th anniversary of 9/11 attacks on the United States.
The Taliban stepped up their attacks on Afghan and NATO-led troops since a spring rebel offensive was launched in May this year in the war-ravaged country.
