At least 13 people, including nine civilians, were killed Monday in a suicide bombing targeting Afghan police which was claimed by Taliban insurgents in a remote area northwest of Kabul, authorities said. The bomber targeted a local police chief, injuring him on the eve of the latest round of quadrilateral talks to be held in Kabul in a bid to revive the peace process with the Taliban and end more than 14 years of war. "There are 13 dead, nine civilians and four policemen, as well as 19 injured, 17 of whom are civilians," Parwan province police chief Mohammed Zaman Mamozai told AFP.
