KABUL - The NATO-led coalition in Afghanistan is expecting Taliban-led insurgents to launch a series of major attacks across the country over the next week, senior military officials said on Friday.

They said recent intelligence reporting indicated that the attacks planned by the Taliban, supported by the al Qaida-linked Haqqani network and other insurgents, would include suicide bombings.

Two senior coalition commanders said they anticipated the campaign of increased violence would last about a week.

"The enemy can generate indiscriminate violence but he can't succeed," one of the coalition commanders told Reuters. "We're expecting a big spike in violence over the next week."
