Taliban Attacks U.S. Embassy
No injuries were reported from NATO or the embassy.
Insurgents, using a nearby office building as their base, shot into the embassy using rifles and rocket-propelled grenades.
The district has been described by some as what should be the most secure district of the Afghan capital, raising questions over the U.S. plan to turn over security to Afghan forces.
U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton responded to the attacks Tuesday, stating they would not intimidate the U.S.
"They will not be intimidated by this kind of cowardly attack," Clinton said. "They work hard every day along with their Afghan colleagues to help children go to school, to help save mothers' lives at childbirth, to build roads, to assist farmers."
