Taliban attacks Kabul commando base in Afghanistan; four killed

Kabul blast

According to AP, citing embassy officials, a projectile exploded just minutes into Wednesday.

"An explosion caused by a rocket has occurred on the compound", a message relayed to employees inside the embassy, where officials gave the all-clear about an hour later.

There were no injuries reported.

"And that will continue", Trump said referring to the assault that was ordered after he cancelled the peace talks with the Taliban last week in retaliation for a suicide vehicle bomb attack that killed one American soldier in Kabul.

He told reporters at the White House on Monday that talks were finished.

"We love you, we miss you and you will always be America's heroes", said one woman after reading out the names of her brother and cousin.

Policemen keep watch as angry Afghan protesters burn tires and shout slogans at the site of a blast in Kabul, Afghanistan on September 3, 2019.

It was the first major attack in the Afghan capital since President Donald Trump abruptly called off US-Taliban talks on the brink of an apparent deal to end America's longest war.

In the almost 18 years of fighting since then, the number of United States troops in Afghanistan soared to 100,000 and dropped dramatically after bin Laden was killed in neighbouring Pakistan in 2011.

India's Permanent Representative to the United Nations Syed Akbaruddin said on Tuesday that the country preferred direct talks between the Afghanistan government and the Taliban terrorist group, PTI reported. And I'm not even talking about nuclear power.

The peace negotiations - which were in their final stages, only requiring a final sign-off from both parties - were meant to smooth the USA withdrawal from Afghanistan and ensure the Taliban did not use the country as a terrorist "safe haven". I have a different opinion than they do - that's not unusual. "I want to see if we can get to the final outcome we needed'".

Trump was to meet Afghan President Ashraf Ghani and senior Taliban leaders on Sunday last week at his Camp David retreat after nine rounds of talks between the USA and Taliban representatives, held in Doha, the capital of the Gulf state of Qatar.
