"A suicide bomber has targeted a provincial head of Afghanistan's intelligence agency, wounding the spy and killing a child in the increasingly volatile north of the country. The bomber detonated next to a car carrying the National Directorate of Security (NDS) official at 8.20am (1450 AEDT) in Maymanah in Faryab province .... Meanwhile, in the west, five Afghan soldiers were killed and three others wounded in a Taliban ambush on Saturday, said defence ministry spokesman Zahir Azimi." (10/18/11)
