    BBC News - Militants launch attacks on Afghanistan capital, Kabul

    Militants launch attacks on Afghanistan capital, Kabul:

    Militants are carrying out what appear to be co-ordinated attacks on the Afghan capital Kabul.

    Multiple blasts and gunfire have been heard in the central district, home to a number of international embassies.

    There have also been blasts near the parliament building in the west of the capital, where security forces are said to be fighting at least six militants.

    There is normally a surge in the number of Taliban attacks at this time of year following a relative lull in winter.

    A Taliban spokesman said they were behind the Kabul attacks on the diplomatic enclave and parliament, as well as ongoing attacks in Logar province, close to Kabul, and Paktia province.

    Smoke billowing
    There are reports of at least seven large explosions in central Kabul and gunfire from various directions in the heavily barricaded diplomatic zone.

    Residents were reportedly running for cover and sirens wailing in the Wazir Akbar Khan district.

    Some explosions were also heard near the parliament building in western Kabul and police said it was under attack.

    A parliamentary spokesperson told Reuters news agency rockets had been fired at parliament and the Russian embassy.

    Smoke was said to be billowing from the direction of the German embassy.

    The Agence France-Presse news agency reports that the newly built Kabul Star hotel is on fire.

    Its reporters said they heard the US embassy sounding alarms and warning staff to take cover.

    There are also reports of gunfire from a number of other parts of the capital.

    The BBC's Bilal Sarwary in Kabul says there are also reports of a suicide attack that has closed the centre of the eastern city of Jalalabad.

    Got to hand it to Afghan MPs showing Afghan democracy in action

    When parliament got attacked, these MPs JOINED security forces in fighting them instead of running away as per protocol. Really impressive to be honest

    Afghan MPs Join Securitymen to Fight Taliban Militants | news.outlookindia.com
    Unfazed by the brazen attempt by heavily-armed Taliban gunmen to storm Parliament today, MPs were not found wanting and they joined security forces in firing on the militants.

    Parliament was in session when the gunmen targeted it in the deadly wave of attacks in Kabul and three other eastern cities.

    Mohammad Naeem Lalai, an MP, was quoted as having said that some lawmakers including him and his bodyguards fought the militants who had seized a six-storey building in front of Parliament. The gunmen stopped firing at Parliament after a brief while after beiing engaged by security forces.

    The United States embassy in Kabul was meanwhile in lockdown as explosions and gunfire rocked the capital.

    All staff were accounted for and safe, with no reports of injuries, spokesman Gavin Sundwall said.

    Taliban meanwhile said the wave of attacks marked the start of the rebels' "spring offensive."

    According to Zabihullah Mujahed, the Taliban spokesman, the attacks were also a message to the Kabul government and its Western military backers "who believed we will not launch a spring offensive."

    "The Kabul administration and the invading forces had said some time ago that the Taliban will not be able to launch a spring offensive. Today's attacks were the start of our spring offensive," he was quoted as having said from an undisclosed location.

    2 suicide bombers blew themselves and 2 others were captured. Nothing else in Jalalabad and no casualty reported on the Afghan side. Hopefully the Afghans can squeeze info out of the captured Taliban and find more info.
