Two militants were shot down by the security forces and a third died when he detonated his explosive vest. Many foreign and local workers were rescued from the building by the police. This was the third attack on the Afghan capital in the last three days which marks a trend of escalating violence on the part of the Taliban.

The withdrawal of the NATO led forces from the country over the past few months seems to have strengthened the Taliban, and the war ravaged country is finding it hard to deal with the Taliban threat effectively without back up from the US and NATO. As of now there are only 34,000 allied forces stationed in the country of which 24,000 are from the US, and the US is planning to reduce this number to 10,000 or less by next year.
