5:10 pm Kabul Time

Kabul – The city is under control this evening after a series of brazen and coordinated bomb and gun attacks by the Taliban that shook the heart of Kabul, leaving at least nine people dead, including four Taliban militants, and 40 wounded. These were broadest attacks staged by the Taliban against the government since 2001.

UPDATE: Afghan interior minister reports seven militants were among the dead after Monday's attack on Kabul. Five other people, including a child, were also killed. Mohammad Hanif Atmar said there were a total of 71 people injured, including 35 civilians. Monday's attack on Kabul was the largest by the Taliban since they were overthrown in 2001.

Thanks. No, I was not aware of the twitter hacking yesterday. I am on twitter, under my own name, but I am not as active as I really like.
