KABUL (Reuter) - Fighting between Afghan troops and members of one of the warring factions killed 22 people and injured 150 in the capital yesterday. The two sides later told a ceasefire committee they would try to honour a peace accord signed by their leaders two days earlier. Gunmen from Hizbe Wahdat, one of the smaller factions, had launched an offensive to recapture positions lost in fighting last month.
