A car bomb possibly targeting a convoy of coalition soldiers killed three people in the Afghan capital, while officials added more than 30 troops and Taliban militants to the toll of those killed over the last few days. The additional deaths over the weekend - including 20 Taliban militants, 12 Afghan troops and one coalition soldier - brought the toll to more than 190 people since Wednesday, when a storm of violence broke out in the south. The country's foreign minister, meanwhile, claimed that Taliban leaders are living in Pakistan and coordinating terrorist strikes in Afghanistan from there - the latest barb between the neighbors who are both US allies in the war on terror.
