Taliban suicide bombers have targeted a police building in the Afghan capital Kabul, sparking a gun battle with several other attackers. The raid started early this morning after a car bomb was set off at the gate of the traffic department in Kabul.
Police say another two or three attackers armed with suicide vests and weapons then entered the compound. It is the second raid inside Kabul in less than a week.
The Afghan policewoman approached the US adviser as he was walking in the heavily guarded police chief's compound in the capital. She then drew a pistol and shot him once, a senior police official told Reuters.
