Taliban militants storm Afghan police post

Taliban insurgents on Sunday stormed a provincial police headquarters in eastern Afghanistan, killing five people and wounding at least 20. The raid early Sunday in Gardez, capital of Paktia province, began with a suicide car blast at the entrance to the heavily guarded facility.

Video showed the massive explosion flattened several blocks of the facility.

That allowed a group of heavily armed insurgents to force their way into the compound, said Interior Ministry spokesman Najib Danish.

Meanwhile a Kabul police official, told VOA an African, from an unidentified country was kidnapped by gunmen early Sunday in Kabul. Earlier news reports said the kidnapped man was an American citizen.
