NATO troops and Afghan police killed in blast

Anyone disparagingly mentions blue helmets and I will rip them a new bleep.

At least four NATO soldiers and two policemen have been killed in a suicide blast in eastern Afghanistan that also injured more than 10 civilians, police said.

ISAF, the NATO-led international force in the country, released a separate statement confirming four of its troops were killed.

The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack in a text message to the Reuters news agency.

The attack came a day after Afghan presidential contender Abdullah Abdullah's camp rejected preliminary results of last month's run-off election as a "coup" against the people, putting him on a dangerous collision course with his rival, Ashraf Ghani.

US Secretary of State John Kerry warned on Tuesday that any attempt to take power illegally following a disputed presidential election run-off would cost Afghanistan US support.

The fastest way to a man's heart? Inch to the right of the breastbone, between the fourth and fifth rib.

Every time I start to feel boring, I remember there is a monthly magazine devoted to elevators.
