Imran Khan to Arrive in Kabul, Gov't Announces Holiday

Pakistan PM in 'historic' first visit to Afghanistan Pakistan's Prime Minister Khan on 'Historic' First Visit to Afghanistan

The Interior Affairs Ministry said the rockets landed in Wazir Akbar Khan and Shahr-e-Naw areas in downtown Kabul; Chahar Qala, the Traffic Roundabout; the Gul-e-Surkh Roundabout in PD4, Sedarat Roundabout; the Spinzar Road in the centre of the city; near the National Archive road in PD2; Lysee Maryam market; and the Panjsad Family area, TOLO News reported. However, the Taliban denied responsibility, saying they "do not blindly fire on public places".

Several sources said on Friday that the two sides appear to have resolved some of the issues, however among the sticking points so far, the Taliban and the Afghan government have struggled to agree on a common language on two main issues. "These attackers must die, they don't even spare hospitals".

Pompeo is on a seven-nation tour of Europe and the Middle East.

The attack followed two magnetic bomb blasts in other parts of the city earlier in the day and add to a spate of violence that's continued throughout the country despite ongoing peace talks between the Taliban and the Afghan government.

The U.S. acting ambassador in Kabul, Ross Wilson, condemned the rocket attack.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will meet negotiators from both the Afghan government and the Taliban during his visit to Qatar's capital, Doha, on Saturday.

Representatives of Council members avoided direct mention of the U.S. troop withdrawal by January 15 announced this week by Acting Defence Secretary Christopher Miller, who said that only a barebones force of 2,500 would remain in Afghanistan to protect USA installations.

Since peace talks between the Afghan government and the Taliban stalled in the Qatari capital of Doha, attacks by the Taliban and other extremist groups have been on the rise, especially in the capital that is home to more than five million Afghans.

It has led to fears of worsening violence and regional chaos, which some say could embolden so-called Islamic State to regroup and perhaps try to build another "caliphate".

Donald Trump has repeatedly called for ending "foreign wars", including the one in Afghanistan which began after the September 11, 2001 attacks.

Under the shadow of the rushed United States troop withdrawal from Afghanistan, India on Friday warned that terrorism from across the Pakistan border must end for peace in the country.

Terrorist attacks continue to target innocents and institutions of learning, he said adding that COVID-19 has hit Afghanistan in the midst of a hard political transition and an intensifying conflict.

The interior ministry said two small "sticky bomb" explosions had been reported earlier Saturday morning, including one that hit a police auto, killing one policeman and wounding three others.
