There has been a grenade attack on a US army base in Kuwait, injuring at least ten soldiers, according to reports. The attack is understood to have been carried out by two men – possibly Kuwaiti nationals.
A US military official the incident occurred at Camp Pennsylvania near the Iraqi border.
The official did not identify the unit of the 101st Airborne Division that was in the camp. He said it had been in Kuwait for about one week.
Sky News reporter Stuart Ramsay said the attackers may have been employed in the camp as translators.
He said: “No foreign nationals can come into the camp to work but it may be that they had an excepotion fopr translators.”
But Jim Lacey, a correspondent for Time magazine who was at the camp, told CNN two grenades had been rolled into the command tent, in what appeared to be a “terrorist attack”.
