Three other USA troops were injured in the attack, along with an Afghan contractor. The base in Bagram district serves as the main US air facility in the country.

Three other USA service members were also wounded in the attack.

The Pentagon identified the two other Marines killed as Cpl. The conflicting accounts could not be immediately reconciled. An Afghan contractor was wounded, officials said. Four were passers-by and the fifth was a driver of a vehicle going down the road, said Abdul Raqib Kohistani, the Bagram district police chief.
