A British soldier keeps watch at the site of a car bomb in Kabul on August 22, 2015At least 12 people including three US civilian contractors were killed Saturday when a suicide car bomber struck a NATO convoy, officials said, underlining the precarious security situation in the Afghan capital. The Taliban denied responsibility for the blast, which struck outside a civilian hospital in Kabul following a wave of fatal bombings earlier this month that rattled the city. The piercing explosion in a crowded residential neighbourhood reverberated around Kabul and left a trail of devastation, including twisted wreckage of burning vehicles with officials seen piling up bloodied bodies in a police pickup truck.
