The Taliban has launched a series of coordinated attacks across the Afghan capital on Sunday, including an assault on the presidential palace, the Afghan Parliament and NATO headquarters.

Most of the targets were in the city’s diplomatic district, with western embassies and residences under fire. 32 insurgent fighters and two police officers were killed in the violence, while dozens more were injured.

The military airport at Jalalabad in the east of the country has also been hit, while violence has been reported in two other provinces.

The Taliban says the attacks were retaliation for the actions of US troops, including the burning of the Koran and the recent massacre of 17 Afghan civilians. To discuss the situation in Afghanistan RT talks to radio host and independent blogger Stephen Lendman.
