Taliban fire rockets near Karzai, no one injured

Taliban militants fired rockets near a gathering attended by President Hamid Karzai in central Afghanistan on Sunday, but no one was hurt, officials said. The attack happened as Karzai was giving a speech to residents in the Andar district of Ghazni province, said an Afghan government official, who did not want to be named because he was not authorized to speak on the incident. The rockets missed their target and Karzai continued his speech, he said.
