KANDAHAR, Afghanistan (Reuters) - At least 40 people were killed and 77 injured by a suicide bomb attack on a wedding party in insurgency-plagued southern Afghanistan, a police official said on Thursday.
"A suicide bomber went inside the party where hundreds of people were sitting and blew himself up," the official said of Wednesday night's blast in Arghandab district, north of Kandahar, where foreign troops are focussing on a push in coming months to whittle out the Taliban.
