KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) -- The Taliban and its allies are
continuing their apparent effort to weaken confidence in the Afghan
government as it gets ready to take over its own security.

A suicide bomber today rammed a vehicle filled with explosives
into an armored NATO bus in the capital, killing 17 people
including 12 Americans.

It happened on the same day that a man in an Afghan army uniform
killed three Australian soldiers and an Afghan interpreter in the
south.

And the attack came hours after top NATO and Afghan officials
were meeting elsewhere in Kabul to discuss shifting security
responsibilities to Afghan forces in 17 of the country's 34
provinces.
