Latest stories Thirteen Killed In Suicide Attack In Kabul

At least 13 people are believed to have been killed after a suicide bomber targeted a minibus near Kabul airport in Afghanistan.

Afghan police have said the minibus is believed to have been carrying foreign aviation workers, nine of whom are believed to be among the dead.

Insurgent group Hezb e Islami said it carried out the attack claiming it was in retaliation for a film mocking the Prophet Mohammed.

The bombing highlights the growing anger in Afghanistan over the film, which has enraged much of the Muslim world and led to the killing of the US ambassador to Libya and three other Americans last week.

Thousands of protesters clashed with police in the Afghan capital on Monday, burning cars and hurling rocks at security forces.
