An Afghan governor told a mosque filled with mourners Monday he had warned the target of the country's deadliest suicide attack that militant bombers were trying to kill him, while the death toll rose to more than 100. Afghans buried relatives and friends in the southern city of Kandahar on Monday, a day after a suicide bomber blew himself up in a crowd of men and boys watching a dog fighting competition. Kandahar Gov. Asadullah Khalid told The Associated Press the death toll had risen to more than 100, up from 80 reported killed on Sunday.
