Oh dear... Fourteen militants died in Afghanistan's increasingly war-torn north when explosives detonated prematurely in a minibus bomb being rigged by Taliban fighters, police said. "Fourteen Taliban placing explosives into a minivan for terrorist activities were killed yesterday evening when the bomb went off," said Abdul Rizaq Yaqubi, police chief of northern Kunduz province. "The bomb exploded while they were working to build a car bomb." The incident happened near Kunduz city in the north, where Taliban-linked violence has increased steadily as Afghanistan's insurgency reaches an eight-year high. - AFP ABC News I'm not sure why the rest of the world hasn't picked this story up yet, it only seems to be news in Oz and Pakistan.
