KABUL, Afghanistan - The Taliban is claiming responsibility for a suicide bombing in eastern Afghanistan that killed at least 14 people, including three NATO service members and their translator.
Officials say the bomber was driving a motorcycle packed with explosives and rammed it into a patrol of Afghan and international forces this morning.
A provincial government spokesman says the bomber struck a group of Afghan police and international troops shortly after they got out of their vehicles to walk through a market area in Khost city, the capital of Khost province.
Six civilians and four police officers were killed in the blast and dozens of Afghan civilians were wounded.
