Anyone believe this has anything to do with that stupid movie? I don’t.
Insurgents have attacked Nato’s heavily fortified Camp Bastion base in southern Afghanistan.
At least two US marines died when militants breached the perimeter of the sprawling base in Helmand province.
The Taliban told the BBC that they carried out the attack in revenge for a film mocking Islam which has triggered protests around the Muslim world.
Aircraft and buildings were damaged but Nato says its forces killed 18 of the insurgents and captured one.
Camp Bastion is situated in the middle of the desert with excellent visibility all around, says the BBC’s Jonathan Beale in Kabul.
It is extremely heavily fortified and coalition forces are investigating how militants were able to stage the brazen surprise assault.
