LEON HARRIS, CNN ANCHOR: But right now, we've got some big breaking news that is coming out of Afghanistan.

Let's check in with our Barbara Starr, who's got the latest word. She has been working the Pentagon beat for us this morning.

Barbara, what have you found out?

BARBARA STARR, CNN CORRESPONDENT: Very, very initial word here, Leon. Sources here tell us there has been an explosion in Kabul. The initial word that they have is that there was some mine clearing going on. The Germans are not part of the international security force per se, but they have elements affiliated with it, and they apparently were there.

This is very initial word. All of this may change in the next several hours. But an explosion occurred during this mine-clearing activity, and they believe that several personnel associated with the Germans and the international security force were killed.

We are also told the German government is expected to hold a press briefing very shortly.

HARRIS: Barbara, the Rueters wire service says there may have been more than German troops involved there, as well. So you're right, this story is developing. You'll have to get some more information on this later.
