Afghan and NATO troops repel Taliban attack

NATO and Afghan forces fought back Taliban attackers who launched an assault Monday on a U.S. base in eastern Afghanistan, near the border with Pakistan.
The insurgents detonated explosives and then began firing guns in an area where NATO supply trucks were parked in Nangarhar province, said Ahmed Zia Abdulzai, a spokesman for the province's governor.

      It's about time Pakistan stops terrorizing Afghans. Pakistanis need to give up their Islamic terrorism.
