A suicide bomber has attacked a bus carrying foreign troops in the Afghan capital Kabul killing 13 US soldiers.

A Nato spokesman said the attacker detonated a car filled with explosives.

The attack, in the Darulaman area, west of Kabul, also killed three Afghan civilians and a police officer.

The Taliban has admitted carrying out the attack - one of the worst ground attacks against foreign troops since the beginning of the war. Such attacks are rare in heavily-guarded Kabul.

Separately, three Australian soldiers were killed by a man in Afghan army uniform. Nato said the gunman was also killed in that attack in the south of the country.

May I suggest that you save your trite comments for a better time?

1 Canadian, 1 civilian contractor (Flour), 3 ANP/ANA, four children in the sweet shop the 'Rhino' ploughed into and the Welfare dog were also killed in the Kabul attack.

It says Bus but was in fact and armoured bus....just not that armoured.

I also echo Beagleboy's sentiments.

We've been informed that the rank of the Canadian was somewhat higher, as the bus stopped here to pick people up prior to moving on and said rank was seen getting on.

The sooner we get all the troops out of that festering pit of a country, the better. It is a teeming mass of rival warlords and terrorists and will NEVER be at peace or stable.
A sad waste of young lives of all nationalities (including the natives).
RIP

Like a bit of war porn, do you? Why don't you go to Afghanistan and have a go at 'slotting' some Afghans? At least they're fighting in their own country, and they'll keep it their country or die in the attempt. If that's too complicated for you to understand you must be an American. The rest of us must be mad to keep losing our best men in a war that always was a total waste of time and effort.
