Written by: Staff

KABUL, June 6 (Reuters) A Taliban suicide car bomber rammed a US coalition convoy in the southern Afghan province of Khost today, causing casualties, but there were no immediate reports of deaths, a US military spokeswoman in Kabul said.

''We have very limited information, but there are no reports of coalition casualties, only reports of injured,'' said Lieutenant Tamara Lawrence.

The Pakistan-based Afghan Islamic Press news agency said a Taliban spokesman, Mohammad Hanif, had called to claim responsibility for the attack by one of the militants' fighters.
