More blood being spilled in Afghanistan after 11 years of conflict.
 

Explosions and shots echoed through the streets of Kabul on January 21 as terrorists attacked the headquarters of the city traffic police. The attack follows on the heels of a terrorist attack against a government office in the Afghan capital.

The most recent attack came when a suicide bomber detonated his explosives at the gate of the traffic police compound. In the confusion that followed, more terrorists stormed the facility. They were armed with machine guns and more explosives. The Wall Street Journal cites a police official saying that at least 11 people have been injured and one killed so far in the ongoing violence.
