Norwegian base in Afghanistan attacked
by UPI

MEYMANEH, Afghanistan -- Three rockets targeted a Norwegian military base in northern Afghanistan early Monday, prompting the evacuation of the base, military officials said.

The military base in Meymaneh, the provincial capital of Faryab, came under attack in the early morning. The base held about 150 Norwegian and 50 Latvian soldiers at the time, the spokesman for the Norwegian armed forces, Lt. Col. John Inge Oegland said in Aftenposten.

"We're taking this very seriously," said Oegland. "It was an attack on our base but also an attack on NATO."

A roadside bomb killed a Norwegian soldier last fall and the base came under attack around the same time.
