A coordinated attack by Taliban on the Afghan parliament in Kabul has ended with six gun men killed
Attackers detonated a hugh car bomb outside the gates, stormed the compound then entered a building close to the chamber.
Taliban say they carried out the attack to coincide with a vote to endorse a new defense minister
They were fought off and entered a building under construction next to parliament . It took nearly an hour before all the firing stopped.
The Taliban have launched complex attacks on government buildings in the capital in the past.
Militant violence has increased across the country since the departure of most US and NATO forces last year. (s:bbc)
