Afghanistan violence: Attacks kill 20 in Kabul and Helmand

Taliban gunmen in Afghanistan have been accused of killing 12 landmine clearers in Helmand province, on a day of attacks that saw at least eight other people killed.

A suicide bomber killed seven soldiers on a bus in Kabul and a court official was shot dead elsewhere in the capital.

The BBC's Mike Wooldridge in Kabul says the rise in violent attacks by the Taliban comes as the US and Nato mission in Afghanistan nears its end.
