At least 18 people, mostly civilians, were killed Saturday when a suicide car bomber targeted a convoy of provincial security forces in eastern Afghanistan, an Interior Ministry official said. Najib Danish, the ministry’s deputy spokesman, said the target of the bomber was a group of guards providing security for U.S. forces in Khost province, but most of the victims in the attack were civilians. No group immediately claimed responsibility, but Taliban insurgents have increased their attacks against Afghan security forces since announcing their spring offensive last month. The security forces were attacked near the province’s main bus station, Danish said. “Six other civilians including two small children were wounded in the attack,” he said. The attack, which took place on a road between a bus station and the provincial football stadium, damaged or destroyed about a dozen shops and several vehicles.

Labour got some sums wrong Labour put out some costings alongside the manifesto, which purported to show how every spending promise would be paid for. The IFS says the sums don't add up. The projections are too optimistic on how much money will be raised by various taxes, and Labour have made basic accounting errors too, like quoting the wrong official figures for estimated revenue. The Tories aren't being honest Unlike Labour, the Tories didn't release detailed costings. We don't know how major items, like the U-turn on a cap on social care costs for the elderly, will be paid for. The IFS also points out that the Tories have a track record of announcing very tight spending plans just before elections, but actually spending and taxing more after winning them. Business taxes don't just squeeze the rich Labour say they want to raise more money from a rise in corporation tax than from income tax.

Imagine a sport as straightforward as soccer, but already beloved by the majority of Americans. One with all the potential star power of the NBA, but drawing from a much larger pool of starting-caliber players. A game as kid-friendly as baseball, but faster and more dynamic. This isn't a dream sport. This is flag football. That aspirational view of the gym-class standard is the pitch for the American Flag Football League , the latest NFL alternative to make headlines around the sports world after announcing recently retired football stars Michael Vick and Justin Forsett would participate in its inaugural game. The June exhibition is set to serve as a preview of what fans can expect from the league's first full season, which is scheduled for summer 2018. "This league could potentially be just under the NFL," says Vick of his decision to participate in the AFFL's debut and serve as one of its advisers.

Uber's actions are having real consequences. The Anita Borg Institute for Women and Technology ended a partnership with Uber over allegations of the ride-hailing giant's treatment of women employees. "This is a rare step for us, but we felt compelled to take action in light of the many serious accusations Uber faces regarding the treatment of women employees," the institute wrote in a press release announcing their decision. Uber reached out to the Anita Borg Institute in 2015, the group said. Since then, Uber has signed on as a partner with the institute, but hasn't really done anything. The Anita Borg Institute described a "lack of engagement" on Uber's part. Read more... More about Uber , Women In Tech , Anita Borg Institute , and Business

In a letter to McCabe, Chaffetz said he is seeking to review Comey's memos and other written materials so he can "better understand" Comey's communications with the White House and attorney general's office. Chaffetz, R-Utah, previously requested Comey's recent memos about his private contacts with Trump. But the bureau told him Thursday it could not yet turn them over because of Mueller's probe. Chaffetz, who said last week he has his "subpoena pen" ready to force Comey or the FBI to turn over the documents, told McCabe that "Congress and the American public have a right and a duty to examine this issue independently of the special counsel's investigation." He added, in a thinly veiled threat, "I trust and hope you understand this and make the right decision — to produce these documents to the committee immediately and on a voluntary basis." Chaffetz's letter comes a month before he is scheduled to leave office after abruptly announcing his resignation earlier this year.
