Suicide car bombing kills 18 near US military base in Afghanistan

KHOST:  At least 18 people were killed on Sunday in a suicide car bomb attack near a military base in Afghanistan's eastern province of Khost, where Afghan and foreign soldiers are stationed, authorities said.

The bomber detonated the explosives at a military roadblock near the entrance to the base, said Faizullah Ghairat, the Khost city police chief. 'We counted 18 dead,' said a doctor at a hospital in the city, which is not far from the Pakistani border.
