A suicide attacker with explosives strapped to his body drove a motorbike into a holiday crowd watching a wrestling match in an Afghan border town, killing at least 20 people and wounding more than 30 others. Monday's attack was the bloodiest in a recent wave of suicide assaults and the third deadly blast in two days in the southern province of Kandahar, the former Taliban stronghold. Earlier, President Hamid Karzai warned that Afghanistan could again become a staging post for terrorist strikes in Europe and America if international support wavers.
