(06-19 16:16)

Taliban militants set NATO military vehicles ablaze in Afghanistan, with local officials saying 37 were affected, though the coalition confirmed only that ''several'' were damaged.
All three attackers died in a gunfight with Afghan police and soldiers at the Torkham border crossing with Pakistan, Nangarhar provincial spokesman Ahmad Zia Abdulzai said.
''After making it into the parking lot, they used magnetic bombs to destroy some 37 NATO vehicles and fuel trucks,'' he said.
''They were killed in an hour-long gun battle with security forces, who did not suffer any casualties.''--AFP
