At Least 1 Dead, 22 Injured in Car Bomb Explosion in Kabul

US urges India Pak to hold talks

Afghanistan's Interior Ministry spokesman Najib Danish said that a Suzuki vehicle was used by suicide bombers.

Speaking at the inauguration of a one-day global conference on February 28, attended by 20 nations and aimed at creating a platform for peace talks, Afghan President Ashraf Ghani said a framework for peace negotiations should be created, with the Taliban recognized as a legitimate group, with their own political office to handle negotiations in Kabul or another agreed-upon location.

A auto bomb exploded near Australian Embassy vehicles in Kabul on Friday, killing an Afghan child.

However, a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation spokesman denied any foreign troops had been injured, while the Australian embassy said the blast had come as one of its convoys was passing by.

GM John Schneider doesn't deny report Seahawks are shopping Michael Bennett
ESPN's Brady Henderson reports Seattle is working to move Bennett, hoping to get some of his $7.4 million cap hit off the books. All have been recently injured and are nearing 30. "We are just constantly talking to people all the time", Schneider said.

A horse was also badly injured in the blast and could be seen stumbling at the scene - its head, belly and legs burnt - before it was finally taken pity on and killed on the spot with a knife, an AFP reporter at the scene said.

"The Australian Government extends its sympathies to families and friends of people killed and injured in the attack", Ms Bishop said in the statement. One person had been killed and 14 bystanders wounded, he added, with all the casualties civilians.

"Unfortunately around 9:00 am, a auto bombing took place in (the) Qabil Bay area of Kabul".

On Wednesday, Afghan President Ashraf Ghani called on the Taliban to take part in peace talks to "save the country", offering security and incentives such as passports to insurgents who join the negotiations.

The United States dared to permit itself renewed hope Thursday that the longest war in its history may be closer to a negotiated settlement, after Afghan-led talks went better than expected.

Walmart raises to 21 minimum age to buy firearms, ammo
Walmart followed suit a short while later, announcing that they, too, were raising the age to purchase a gun to 21. Dick's stock price was little changed as of midafternoon Wednesday afternoon, up 1.7 per cent.

But Ghani and USA officials now accept that the Taliban can enter peace talks without first accepting the country┬┤s new democratic constitution and its protections for women and minority groups.

More than 16,000 foreign troops are deployed in Afghanistan under the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation mandate, mostly Americans who supervise Afghan forces and conduct counter-terrorism operations.

The Taliban "calls on American officials to talk directly to the Political Office" of the group, read the statement, apparently referring to an alleged office in the Qatari capital.

Security in the capital has been tightened amid fears of more attacks.
