Militants launched a gun and bomb attack on the interior ministry in Kabul on Wednesday, killing a policeman in the latest chilling demonstration of their ability to strike at the heart of the Afghan capital.

Special forces rushed to the scene after the attackers detonated what police said was a vehicle bomb at the first checkpoint leading to the ministry, then tried to battle their way inside.

WASHINGTON: Senior Taliban officials have been secretly negotiating with Afghan officials on a possible ceasefire, the Pentagon said Wednesday, even as United States forces killed over 50 Taliban leaders in a series of strikes. The Amaq statement did not provide the names or specify the number of attackers.

More than 50 Taliban commanders were killed when the rocket hit the restless Helmand province, as militants from across the country gathered for a meeting, a spokesperson for U.S. forces in Afghanistan said.

The report to Congress by inspectors general of the Pentagon, the State Department and the U.S. Agency for International Development also cast doubt on the administration's decision to send a new set of military advisers this year to work with Afghan forces closer to the front lines.

"We think the meeting was to plan next steps", said Lt. Col. Martin O'Donnell, spokesman for USA forces in Afghanistan.

Daesh claimed responsibility for the attack.

Later Wednesday, the American commander of US and coalition forces in Afghanistan cast doubt the attack was the work of IS, saying instead there are indications the Taliban-allied Haqqani network was behind it.

Messi announces desire to play for Newell's Old Boys
It was a convincing - if not surprising - win for a team ranked fifth in the world, 103 places above their opponents. Lionel Messi will be acutely aware that this is nearly certainly his final World Cup at his peak.

Last month, for example, more than two dozen people were killed by suicide bomber attacks in Kabul.

Initial findings by the ministry said six attackers were killed.

Washington Post reporter Dan Lamothe said on Twitter that the nearby coalition base was locked down for about an hour after the attack.

But on April 25, the Taliban announced their offensive and since then, the violence has increased, but still stands at a level that's 10 percent to 20 percent below the five-year average, he said.

Among the dead were the commander of the police station and the deputy director of traffic police for the provincial capital, Puli Alim, said Khalid Safi, a spokesman for the provincial governor.

The Taliban claimed the attacks in both provinces. The attackers did not manage to enter the main compound.

An Afghan military spokesman says elite commando units have freed dozens of prisoners held by the Taliban, including women and children, in an early morning operation in southern Helmand province.
