Afghan President Hamid Karzai speaks during a ceremony Tuesday at a military academy on the outskirts of Kabul.
The developments cast doubt on the newly announced peace talks between the insurgents and the U.S.
June 14, 2013 By this time next year, there will be roughly half as many U.S. troops in Afghanistan as there are today. And for U.S. strategy in the country to work, Afghan security forces will have to hold off the Taliban after the Americans leave. But it's unclear if the Afghans will all stand together.
June 10, 2013 At least seven heavily armed Taliban insurgents launched a pre-dawn attack near Afghanistan's main airport Monday, apparently targeting NATO's airport headquarters with rocket-propelled grenades, assault rifles and at least one large bomb. Two Afghan civilians were wounded and all the attackers were killed after an hours-long battle.
June 9, 2013 Explosions and gunfire erupted on the military side of the airport, which houses a NATO headquarters, in Afghanistan's capital. The Kabul police said attackers wearing suicide vests had occupied a tall building on the west side of the airport and were firing at the military facility.
