WASHINGTON, Nov 7 (Reuters) President George W Bush today called Afghan President Hamid Karzai in the aftermath of the country's worst suicide attack and urged him to ''stay strong,'' White House spokeswoman Dana Perino said.

''The president said the murderous act reminds all of us about the brutality of the enemy we are facing,'' she said. ''The president said that America cares deeply about the Afghan people and he urged President Karzai to stay strong.'' Afghans began three days of mourning on Wednesday for the dozens of people, many of them children, who were killed by the blast.
