Taliban launch spring offensive with rocket attack on US base
Taliban insurgents shot rockets onto a US base outside Kabul and targeted Afghan government buildings in a provincial capital on Friday, as they officially launched their spring offensive in a year that has already seen fierce fighting.

 

There were no casualties in either rocket attack, officials said. This year's fighting season is expected to be intense after NATO forces ended their 13-year combat mission in December. The Taliban claimed in an emailed statement to have launched 108 attacks across the country on Friday and to have "killed and wounded many Americans" at Bagram Air Base outside Kabul, the capital.
