6. 13 dead in Afghanistan bombing

A suicide bomb attack killed 13 people and injured 8 others in Afghanistan on the first day of Islam's holy Month of Ramadan.

Provincial officials say a car bomb was detonated near a military convoy on Saturday in the eastern province of Khost.

Taliban insurgents have claimed responsibility for the attack, saying they targeted Afghan soldiers who had been trained by a US intelligence organization.

Afghan authorities are stepping up security measures as extremists are likely to stage more attacks during Ramadan.
