Taliban Attacks in Kabul and Eastern Afghanistan

Attacks come weeks before US pullout begins.


A series of coordinated attacks on civilian and military targets in central and eastern Afghanistan on Tuesday left 10 people dead and dozens wounded, including at least three coalition troops. 

The deadliest attack occurred west of Kabul, where Taliban fighters set off a roadside bomb that hit a bus full of Afghan civilians. At least nine people were killed and five wounded in the attack, according to recent news reports.
