“Taliban forces stormed a police compound south of Kabul on Tuesday, killing at least 15 people, including a local police chief, in a gun battle that lasted hours, officials said. The commando-style raid in Gardez, about 80 miles south of Kabul, also injured about 100 people after two car bombs exploded outside a facility that serves as a command center for local police and a main training site for police recruits. It was the latest in a surge of Taliban attacks that included a suicide bombing last month that killed five people near a Shiite mosque in Kabul.” (10/17/17)
