More violence has erupted between Taliban fighters and government troops in Afghanistan.
Parts of a military base were destroyed after a car bomb exploded in Wardak Province, not far from the capital, Kabul.
Security officials say four Taliban fighters were killed, while four members of the Afghan security forces were injured in the attack.
Fighting has also flared in the southern province of Helmand.
No injuries were reported from Wednesday night’s violence.
But it is happening against a backdrop of peace negotiations under way in Qatar.
