A suicide bombing in the eastern Afghan city of Khost has killed at least 14 people, three of them Nato soldiers, officials say.

Nato did not confirm the nationalities of the soldiers, but correspondents say US troops operate in the area.

Taliban insurgents said they carried out the attack, which also killed four Afghan police.

Witnesses said the attacker waited for troops to leave their vehicles before detonating the bomb.
