Taliban launches attack on Afghan city

AIR
The Taliban launched an attack on a second Afghan city, even as a United States envoy says the US and the Taliban are "at the threshold of an agreement" to end America's longest war.

The spokesman for the Baghlan province police chief, Jawed Basharat, said gunbattles continued on the outskirts of its capital, Puli Khumri. There was no immediate word on any casualties.

The attack came a day after the Taliban attacked Kunduz, one of Afghanistan's largest cities, in the province to the north and killed at least 16 people and wounded nearly 100. 

Safdar Mohsini, chief of the Baghlan provincial council, said if the Taliban enter the city they will be very difficult to repel. The city is 230 kilometres north of Kabul.


Meanwhile, Washington's special envoy to Afghanistan Zalmay Khalilzad said he was visiting Kabul today to brief the Afghan government on the details of a deal that is not yet final.
