A suicide car bomber has killed 18 people in the eastern Afghan city of Khost, the first day of the holy fasting month of Ramadan.

Interior Ministry spokesman Najib Danish said a public bus station was hit by the bombing, but local police said the target were Afghan security forces working with American troops in the province.

“A suicide car bomb in Khost province has killed 18 people and wounded six others, including two children,” Mr Danish said.

The attack comes a day after at least 15 Afghan soldiers were killed when Taliban fighters attacked their base in Kandahar, in the third major insurgent assault this week on the military in the southern province.
