CNN is reporting breaking news from Afghanistan this morning.
A battle erupted between Taliban fighters and Afghan security forces near the airport in Kabul overnight. The Taliban is claiming the attack was intended to target Americans.
The Times of London reporter Jeremy Kelly delivers the latest live from Kabul. Kelly says this attack does not indicate an increase in attacks on Americans as the U.S. prepares to pull out from Afhanistan. "This has been a continuation of a Taliban tactic for some time now, where they are preferring to target Afghan security forces," he says. "They're perceived as a softer target and easier to attack."
