KABUL, Afghanistan — The Taliban launched a suicide attack on a national peace conference taking place in Afghanistan. President Hamid Karzai interrupted his opening remarks to reassure nervous delegates hearing the thump of rockets and rattle of gunfire outside.

No delegates were harmed but at least two attackers were killed in fighting with Afghan security forces near the giant tent erected for the three-day gathering, officials said.
