16 dead in Taliban’s simultaneous attacks

KABUL, Afghanistan: The Taliban attacked a second Afghan city on Sunday, a day after killing 16 persons in the city of Kunduz an official said, even as Washington’s peace envoy said the US and the militant group are “at the threshold of an agreement” to end America’s longest war.The attack on the capital of Baghlan province came hours after US envoy Zalmay Khalilzad said he warned the Taliban during talks in Qatar that “violence like this must stop.” But he appeared determined to move forward on a deal that plans the withdrawal of some 14,000 remaining US troops in exchange for Taliban guarantees that Afghanistan will not be used as a launch pad for global attacks.
