Taliban attack police HQs in Afghanistan:
The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack on the police compound in the eastern city of Jalalabad, which began before midnight on Sunday when a suicide bomber detonated a car-bomb at the gate, clearing the way for his comrades to rush in.
Zabihullah Mujahid, a spokesman for the Taliban, said the attack was aimed at an “importing meeting” at the headquarters.
A police commander said his men over-powered the militants.
“Our security forces responded quickly.
They shot and killed four others, while a fifth attacker has been detained,” said provincial police chief Fazal Ahmad Shirzad. Link
