A suicide bomber who attacked a CIA base in Afghanistan last week has been identified as a Jordanian doctor working as a "double agent", US news outlets reports.
The newly-surfaced details of Wednesday's attack were contrary to the CIA's initial claims that the bomber was a member of the Taliban.
The former senior intelligence official and the foreign official said the bomber was Humam Khalil Abu-Mulal al-Balawi, a 36-year old doctor from Zarqa, Jordan, who had been recruited by Jordanian intelligence. Zarqa is the hometown of slain al Qaeda in Iraq leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. NBC News first reported the bomber's identity.
