Attack on British Council in Kabul Kills 10

The Taliban still trying to get their point across.

"Taliban mujahedeen stormed these two compounds and heavy fighting is going on with the Afghan police," Mujahid said. "Today [Friday] is our independence day from Britain. They recognized our independence 92 years ago -- today's attack was marking that day.

Ignorant idiots, What would the world think if the U.S. decided to attack England on the 4th of July, our independence day, just because we won the war?

NATO forces backed by helicopters were battling Friday with insurgents who killed at least ten people, including a foreign soldier, in an assault on a British cultural center in the Afghan capital.

At least five blasts, claimed by the Taliban, rocked the British Council offices in Kabul from the early hours of the morning, during a public holiday marking Afghanistan's independence from Britain in 1919.

Insurgents holed up in the compound, and troops from NATO's International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) were called in to assist the operation.

The road leading up to the British Council was blocked by three large armored cars and two humvees, and Apache helicopters were seen flying overhead.
