    A Taliban suicide car bomb targeted a NATO convoy in eastern Afghanistan April 10, killing at least three civilians.

    A Taliban suicide car bomber targeted a convoy of NATO forces near an army checkpoint in eastern Afghanistan.

    The attack killed three Afghan civilians and injured several others.

    In a different area, 12 civilians in a minivan were killed when a roadside bomb hit their vehicle in the militant controlled southeastern province of Ghazni.

    Taliban insurgents have advanced suicide attacks on government and foreign targets since Washington declared a delay in troop withdrawals from Afghanistan last month.
