Mahuddin Noori, a spokesman for the governor in western Herat province, said five suicide bombers attacked the contractor's compound, not far from a NATO base and the Herat airport.

The Taliban quickly claimed responsibility for the attack.

The insurgents first detonated a bomb near the entrance to the wholesale jerseys compound and then stormed the building. A gunbattle then followed as Afghan security forces and NATO-led troops fought back, Noori told reporters.

Two Afghan guards were killed and one foreign civilians was cheap mlb jerseys among five people wounded, he said. The attackers, who were all killed, were equipped with explosives-packed suicide vests, rocket-propelled grenades and launchers and assault rifles.

Reuters television pictures showed the bloodied bodies of at least two attackers lying on the ground surrounded by Afghan police and soldiers.

A spokesman for the NATO-led International Security A nfl jerseys cheapssistance Force (ISAF) said the attack against contractor Esko was about one kilometer from their Herat base.

Italian troops are mainly based in Heart, although ISAF could jerseys wholesalenot confirm the identity of those wounded. Television pictures showed Italian army vehicles lining the wall outside the base.

The attack was the latest in a string of recent assaults across Afghanistan.

On Saturday, a suicide car bomber killed 13 ISAF troops yotoforum and civilian employees, as well as four Afghans, in Kabul, the deadliest single ground attack against the coalition since the war began 10 years ago.

Another three Afghan civilians were killed in a suicide attack in the southern Afghan city of Kandahar on Monday, officials said.

Herat city was among the first seven areas where security was cheap jerseys transferred from foreign troops to Afghan forces in July.

That marked the first step in a handover process that is due to end with all foreign combat troops leaving Afghanistan by the end of 2014.
