A Nato base in Herat, the largest city in western Afghanistan has come under attack by at least two suicide bombers.

It is feared several people have been killed and witnesses report the sound of gunfire is ringing out across the city.

The base at Herat is an Italian-run joint civilian and military Provincial Reconstruction Team. Italian soldiers form the bulk of foreign troops in the area but there has been no confirmation of casualties from ISAF.
