NATO soldiers walk at the site of a suicide bomb attack in Kabul, AfghanistanBy Mirwais Harooni KABUL (Reuters) - A Taliban suicide car bomb attack on a convoy of NATO troops in Kabul on Tuesday wounded 21 Afghan civilians and killed one, police and witnesses said. Far to the south, another Taliban suicide attack targeted a police headquarters in Helmand province, killing two people and wounding more than 50. Most foreign troops left Afghanistan last year when the combat mission ended and only a small NATO contingent remains to train Afghan security forces.

Piggybank painted in colours of Greek flag stands in front of letters spelling word 'GREECE' in this picture illustration taken in BerlinEU authorities made a last-minute offer to salvage a bailout deal that could keep Greece in the euro as the clock ticked down on Tuesday, with Germany warning that time had run out to extend vital credit lines to Athens. With billions of euros in locked-up bailout funds due to expire at midnight, the European Commission urged Greece to accept the proposed deal, while holding out hopes that some tweaks could still be possible.

A lion yawns at the Lionsrock Big Cat Sanctuary near BethlehemJOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - "Sylvester" the lion's fight for freedom and sheep through South Africa's arid Karoo region ended a mile-high in the mountains and with a dart knocking him out, South African National Parks (SANParks) said on Tuesday. The big cat escaped from the Karoo National Park three weeks ago and went on a sheep killing spree, covering 300 kms (180 miles) before it was sedated on Monday, SANParks said in a statement. The animal, nicknamed Sylvester, had to be airlifted from the Nuweveld Mountains, 5,800 feet (1,750 metres) above sea level, in a hair-raising operation that left little margin for error.
