Security forces exchange fire with gunmen in Kabul, Afghanistan

Security forces traded gun and rocket fire with unknown assailants holed up in a Kabul house on Tuesday, officials said. A spokesman for the intelligence service, Saeed Ansari, said the troops wanted to capture the suspects alive, but gave no details on who was targeted. Zemerai Bashary, the Interior Ministry spokesman, described the suspects as "terrorists." An Associated Press reporter at the scene said that both sides were trading rocket-propelled grenade and automatic gunfire.
