Taliban claim bomb attack on police in Afghanistan, wounding nearly 100.

At least 95 people were wounded in the attack which saw a suicide bomber detonate a car-bomb outside a police station, government officials said.

The blast, in the west of the city during the morning rush hour, sent a huge cloud of gray smoke billowing into the sky.

There has been no let-up in violence in Afghanistan even though the Taliban and the United States appear close to a historic pact for U.S. troops to withdraw in exchange for a Taliban promise the country would not be used as a base from which to plot attacks by extremists.
