    As many as 12 people - mostly foreigners - have been killed in a suicide bomb attack in the Afghan capital Kabul.

    The blast was claimed by the Hezb-e-Islami insurgent group in retaliation for an American film mocking the Prophet Mohammed.

    The dead were travelling in a minibus which had pulled over to refuel on a main highway from the city to the international airport.
