Insurgents breach U.S. military outpost in southern Afghanistan, U.S. officials say

A small U.S. military outpost in southern Afghanistan was breached by insurgents early Tuesday, according to two U.S. officials.

Both officials said initial details are sketchy, but military reports indicate that at least eight insurgents somehow got inside the security perimeter at Forward Operating Base Frontenac. Neither official had information on how the breach occurred.
