Taliban fighters attacked an upscale district in Afghanistan’s capital, Kabul, Thursday evening. Witnesses described multiple explosions and bursts of gunfire in the Wazir Akbar Khan area, which contains numerous foreign embassies and compounds housing international agencies and companies, as well as the homes of some senior Afghan government officials. A Taliban spokesman said the intended target was a guesthouse in the district occupied by foreigners. No foreigners died, but three attackers were killed. The attack came hours after a suicide car-bomber struck a British embassy vehicle, killing five people including a British citizen.
