Afghan security deal hinges on attacks ending

President Karzai says he will only sign the security agreement if NATO airstrikes stop.

    A prominent anti-Taliban lawmaker has been injured by a suicide bombing inside his home in Kabul.

    The bombing comes as Afghan President Hamid Karzai considers an agreement allowing NATO forces to stay in the country beyond 2014.

    He says all NATO airstrikes must stop before he'll sign that deal.

    It follows a drone strike on Thursday, which killed a child and injured two women.
