Taliban attack foreigners in Afghan capital

Published: 03.28.14, 22:38 / Israel News

Taliban militants attacked the residence of an American charity and a nearby day care center Friday in Kabul, sending foreigners – including women and children – fleeing the scene while Afghan security forces battled the gunmen holed up in the building. An Afghan girl and a driver were killed in the crossfire, officials said.


An uptick in bold attacks on foreigners in the Afghan capital suggests the Taliban are shifting tactics to focus on civilian targets that aren't as heavily protected as military and government installations as part of an overall surge in violence ahead of April 5 elections. (AP)
