The Daily Mail reports:

“At least ten militants were reported to have been killed in the fighting and one attacker detained. Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said in a statement yesterday that the attack was retribution for the recent killings of several of its leaders in northern Afghanistan. The Nato-led military coalition deploys advisers to the base to train and assist Afghan forces, but no international troops were reported to have been involved.”

“The Western-backed Afghan government is locked in a prolonged war with the Taliban and other militant groups. An Afghan soldier who heard the gunfire said: ‘I asked my friend what was happening, and he said, “Relax, it must be one of us.” “It wasn’t. It was the Taliban.”
