    Agencies (Qasioun) - At least 13 people have been killed in a suicide car bombing in the eastern Afghan city of Khost, officials say.

     

    At least two children were among the wounded, the information ministry said.

     

    The attacker targeted police vehicles in the centre of Khost. So far no group has claimed responsibility although the Islamic State will be the main suspect.

     

    There has been a surge in violence in several parts of Afghanistan recently - much of it involving the Taliban.

     

    On Friday at least 15 soldiers were killed in a Taliban attack on a military base in Kandahar province.
