Suicide bomber kills six in Afghanistan

9:33 pm on 28 December 2008

A suicide bomber attacked an Afghan government building and killed six people, including four children, on Sunday in the southeastern province of Khost.

The bomber used a car in the attack, part of the latest spell of rising violence this year in Afghanistan, the bloodiest period since Taliban's removal in 2001.

Two of the six killed in the attack on Ismail Kheil's district headquarters, were security forces.
