Taliban Attack Afghan Capital Again

iStockphoto/Thinkstock(ISLAMABAD) -- The Taliban have struck again deep in the heart of Afghanistan's capital. This time, the target was a NATO logistics center run by a military contractor.

The attack happened Tuesday just before sunrise on the outskirts of Kabul.  A suicide bomber drove a small truck to an outer gate of a logistics center used by NATO and detonated.

After the blast -- which left a massive crater in the ground -- gunmen stormed in and opened fire, holding out for nearly an hour before Afghan security forces killed them in return fire.

At least six people were killed in Tuesday's attack.

It's the latest Taliban assault on the country's capital, and comes after similar attacks on the Presidential Palace last week and the Supreme Court just two weeks ago.
