A suicide bomber with explosive wrapped around his body detonated himself killing about 14 persons mostly security personnel and injuring 54 when he was stopped for body search at a joint security check post at Mingora in Swat on Saturday.

Four suicide bombers struck the southern Afghan city of Kandahar on Saturday evening, knocking over houses and shops and killing at least 31 people, according to government and news reports.
