Series of Blasts, Rocket Fire Rock Kabul Diplomatic Area

At least a dozen large explosions followed by rocket fire and automatic gunfire have rocked Kabul on Sunday in what appears to be a coordinated attack on the diplomatic area and the NATO base.
*Parliamentary spokesman told Reuters that rockets were fired at Afghanistan's parliament and Russian embassy buildings.
Several attackers have entered Afghan parliament in Kabul, a local official says. Residents across town also reported explosions near the parliament building.
A witness says rocket-propelled grenade has hit the residence of British diplomat in Kabul.
Suicide bombers are said to have taken over Kabul hotel, launching rocket and rifle fire.
Smoke is billowing from the direction of the German embassy and several other buildings. Sirens could be heard throughout the neighborhood.
It is the first attack in Kabul since a shooting inside the Interior Ministry in February when a ministry employee turned a gun on NATO advisers and shot two soldiers dead.
The diplomatic area is a most fortified and heavily guarded part of the Afghan capital.
