A Taliban suicide bomber rammed an explosives-laden car into a NATO convoy near the U.S. embassy in Kabul Tuesday, killing three soldiers and wounding at least 13 Afghan civilians in a massive blast.The NATO force has now 41,000 troops in Afghanistan, with about 29,000 from the U.S. and just 300 from Poland.All NATO combat soldiers will withdraw by December after 13 years of fighting the Taliban, with a follow-on mission of about 12,000 troops likely to stay on into 2015 on training and support duties.In August four civilians were killed in a similar attack on a NATO convoy in the city.So-called "insider attacks" have undermined relations between foreign soldiers and the Afghan military, which is being trained to take on the Taliban alone after NATO's exit.
