Gunmen and suicide bombers hit at least five targets as insurgents aim to take control of provincial capital
The Taliban launched an unprecedented, multi-pronged attack on Kandahar, with commanders claiming they aimed to "take control of the city".
Haji Pacha, an influential elder from the Alokozai tribe, said Kandahar was "completely empty. There is fighting still going on in at least three
districts of the city and all the shops are closed, the people are completely terrified," he said by telephone
Although they say this is not connected to the death of OBL you know damn well it is, I believe we may see them step up attacks due to the info
Ahmed Wali Karzai, the head of Kandahar's provincial council played down the situation, said the assault on the city was "not serious at all", and
that the situation was under control.
