BRUSSELS - The head of NATO said Taliban attacks in Kabul on Tuesday were an attempt to derail plans to hand over security responsibility to Afghan forces in Afghanistan, but would not succeed.

"We are following the events closely. We have confidence in the Afghan authorities' ability to deal with this situation," alliance Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said.

Taliban suicide fighters launched an attack in the center of the Afghan capital on Tuesday, taking over a building under construction near the diplomatic district and firing rockets in the direction of several embassy and NATO compounds.

The assault was the second major Taliban attack in the city in under a month after suicide bombers targeted the British Council headquarters in mid-August, killing nine people.
