"NATO says five of its soldiers have been killed in a roadside bomb attack in eastern Afghanistan. Local Afghan officials said an improvised explosive device went off Wednesday near a convoy of coalition troops in the province of Ghazni. ... Separately, Afghan police said they shot and killed an attempted suicide bomber before he could detonate his explosives outside a bank in the eastern province of Khost, a stronghold of the al-Qaida-linked Haqqani militant network."
