Auto bomb explodes in Kabul hours after President Ghani outlines peace plan

U.S. Secretary of Defense James N. Mattis speaks to reporters at the Pentagon in Washington D.C. Nov. 21 2018

Earlier the president, who faces a re-election battle next year, told a United Nations -sponsored conference in Geneva of plans to appoint a team to seek a peace deal, which he said would take at least five years to implement.

A spokesman for the Kabul police chief says at least six people have been wounded in a coordinated attack against security forces in the eastern part of the capital Kabul.

Jasso, a member of the elite Rangers who was on his third deployment to Afghanistan, was accidentally shot by an Afghan partner force during a battle with al-Qaeda, the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation mission announced Tuesday. An American contractor was also wounded, it said.

Kabul police spokesman Basir Mujahid said the target of the attack was G4S.

The two-day summit in Geneva is billed as a platform for the Afghan government to renew its commitment to reform and discuss aid contributions in its bid to achieve stability and security.

"There are no indications he was shot intentionally", the statement said.

No other details have been released.

Man Utd boss Mourinho: Why Bailly not getting game

An interior ministry official said an unknown number of gunmen had entered the compound after a auto bomb exploded near the facility and were battling security forces.

The Taliban has claimed the attack that killed three USA service members and completely destroyed a US tank in eastern Afghanistan, AP reported.

Attahullah Afghan, who heads the provincial council, said most of the casualties in Helmand, which included men, women and children, happened in an airstrike that hit a house on Tuesday night during military operations in the province, a Taliban heartland.

The meeting aims to take stock of progress of the Afghan government in using billions of dollars in foreign aid for education, health care, humanitarian support and needs since 2016.

A spokesman for G4S confirmed to the Telegraph that there was "an incident at one of our locations in Kabul".

It said the militants had stockpiled ammunition in the area of the operation, which could have caused civilian casualties.
