Afghan Army Repels Taliban Assault on Parliament in Kabul

Jon Queally, staff writer

The Afghan Army and security forces were able to repel a morning assault against the nation's parliament complex by Taliban soldiers on Monday which began with a truck bomb followed by an attempt by gunmen to storm the main building where lawmakers were in session.

Early reports indicate that no members of the Afghanistan Parliament were injured in the attack, though several civilian deaths and dozens of injuries associated with the violence were noted by officials at the scene.
