Taliban assault northern city of Afghanistan from three directions
Sept.28, Kabul: Taliban fighters have launched an attack on the northern city of Afghanistan. Hundred of militants are attacking from several directions and are reported to have briefly entered a hospital.
There are casualties on both sides, police say.
Kunduz province has seen a number of attacks since April, with the Taliban joining forces with other insurgents. The assault comes a day after a bomb attack on a sports match in the eastern Paktika province killed nine people.
Monday's attack in Kunduz appears to be one of the most significant mounted on a provincial capital by the Taliban, local media reported.
