BBC NEWS | South Asia | Militants launch Afghan attacks
Here is my question. With such attacks occurring, does anyone still think that Obama should not give the generals what they are asking for in a troop surge in Afghanistan?Taliban militants have attacked official buildings in east Afghanistan, firing rockets at a police headquarters and government offices, officials say.
Locals in Pul-i-Alam, the capital of Logar province, said the area was evacuated amid reports of gun battles and Apache helicopters overhead.
At least five people are reported to have been killed as six insurgents fired grenades inside the city.
The attack comes 10 days before nationwide elections in Afghanistan.
