Kabul Election Office Attacked by Taliban


Five people are dead following a militant attack of a Kabul, Afghanistan election office earlier today (Tuesday). Eight others were injured. The five gunmen were ultimately killed as well, following five long hours of back and forth shooting between said gunmen and Afghani security detail. 

The Taliban, ardent opposers of the upcoming April 5th election day, have claimed responsibility for the attack. They have also pledged to disrupt the actual election day to the best of their ability.
