  • The Taliban did not define what was meant by

It appeared to be a rare victory for Afghan security forces, who have struggled to secure the capital in recent months.

A spokesman for the ministry, Najib Danesh, said eight suicide bombers were involved in the attack, which began with a auto bombing outside the compound.

The attack began as 10 militants, traveling in armored vehicles, gathered outside the interior ministry in Kabul, according to The Associated Press.

"After that, several gunmen tried to get into the ministry, but they faced resistance by our security forces", he said. However, a police officer who declined to be identified said the toll was higher than reported.

"We ran to escape to the other side of the road", said Safi.

"We broke their dream so that they will never try to attack military installations particularly the minister of interior", Danish said.

B.C. files constitutional challenge of Alberta's fuel restriction law
Reacting to the lawsuit, Notley said she wasn't surprised and that B.C.is trying to stoke uncertainty in negotiations. Alberta, for its part, says that its threat to turn off the fuel taps to neighboring B.C.is no joke.

He confirmed that attackers were in military uniform. The facility that was attacked on Wednesday opened a year ago, partly replacing the old ministry in the center of Kabul.

Some Taliban leaders are participating in private talks with Afghanistan government officials to jumpstart peace talks, even as fighting endures in the 16-year war, the top us commander in the country said Wednesday.

"These strikes represent one of the largest blows to Taliban leadership in the previous year", U.S. Army Gen. John Nicholson, U.S. Forces-Afghanistan and Resolute Support commander, said in the press release.

The attackers arrived in an SUV before one of them detonated a suicide bomb at the gate. ISIS is an alternative acronym for IS. Both groups have also expanded their footprint in the countryside. Their relentless assaults underscore the struggles that Afghan forces have faced since the United States and North Atlantic Treaty Organisation concluded their combat mission in Afghanistan at the end of 2014.

There have also been numerous attacks on government buildings and at police checkpoints. He said another three people were wounded in the battle Wednesday.

In the eastern Logar province, Taliban suicide bombers attacked a police station, killing at least three policemen.

He might have been a little bit surprised by it, but it wasn't an aggressive hit. "He looked fine in the end", Wilson said. Hopefully we can get there and I'll definitely be in the No. 81 [Jonathan] Marchessault jersey.

PD1's police chief is among the dead, Ahmadzai said.

Danish said one police officer had been killed and five civilians wounded.

He said the attackers set off a suicide auto bomb at the entrance to the station before three suicide bombers tried to enter.

They were captured for different reasons ranging from cooperating with Afghan security forces to being a member of the local police force, Saleem said.

The nomination, which will elevate Gen. Miller to a four-star general, has been made amid a brutal spate of Taliban terrorist attacks and high-profile USA military operations that have bloodied both sides during this year's fighting season.

He said the attackers set off a suicide vehicle bomb at the entrance to the station before three suicide bombers tried to enter. He said the victims included mechanics who had been contracted to fix Afghan army vehicles. No group immediately claimed responsibility.
