    AFGHANISTAN - According to initial ISAF reporting, a small group of insurgents conducted an attack on a private compound this morning in Kabul. The attack was unsuccessful in killing any ISAF personnel but once again, resulted in Afghan civilian casualties to include a number of wounded children.

    Afghan security forces led a capable and quick response in containing and then killing all attackers.

    "This is another desperate attack by the Taliban, but again another noteworthy performance by Afghan security forces for taking the lead in putting down another desperate attack by insurgents," said Gen. Carsten Jacobson, spokesman for the International Security Assistance Force.

    "Another attack by the insurgency that resulted in the deaths of innocent Afghan civilians, with most of that being children from a nearby school," Jacobson added.
