A suspected suicide bomber drove a motorcycle into a guard post outside police headquarters in the southern Afghan city of Kandahar, killing 13 people and wounding 11, officials said. Purported Taliban spokesman Qari Mohammed Yousaf claimed responsibility on behalf of the hard-line militia for the bombing, and threatened more attacks. Ten of the dead and five of the wounded were police who were standing guard when the assault occurred, said Mamoon Khan, a doctor at Kandahar city's Mirwaise Hospital, which was treating the injured. The rest of the victims were civilians.
