Taliban Attacks on US Consulate in Afghanistan

Ad Feedback

Taliban fighters attacked a U.S. consulate in Western Afghanistan Friday, killing two Afghan security agents.

Suicide attackers unleashed two car bombs at the consulate in Herat, near the Iranian border.

Reports indicate Afghan and U.S. Special Forces helped secure the compound, killing five attackers in a gunbattle.

No attackers managed to breach the compound, and all U.S. personnel at the site are safe.

But the brazen attack underscores the perilous security situation as U.S. troops prepare for a full withdrawal next year.
