Suicide blast kills 6 at Afghan airport: Police

KABUL (AFP) - At least six people were killed and seven wounded in a suicide car bomb attack at the gates of Jalalabad airport in eastern Afghanistan on Monday, police said. 'Six people are dead,' Nangarhar provincial police spokesman Hazrat Mohammad told AFP. Nato troops have sealed off the area, where they have a base, said provincial spokesman Ahmad Zia Abdul Zai. The attack comes after at least 30 people were killed in six days of violent anti-US demonstrations across the country in protest over the burning of Qurans at a US military airbase. On Sunday, seven US soldiers were wounded in a grenade attack on their base in northern Kunduz province, police said.
