Three Nato soldiers die in blast

Three Nato service members have been killed in a suicide car bomb attack on their convoy in the Afghan capital, Kabul.

The International Security Assistance Force did not provide details on the identities or nationalities of those killed.

Earlier, police said the attack, which occurred about a kilometre (half mile) from the Camp Phoenix Nato base, wounded six civilians.

Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid said the insurgent group was behind the attack.

Television images showed remains of the exploded car littering a street, and several armoured vehicles stopped nearby.
