A lone plane dropped three bombs in the northwestern part of Kabul on Monday morning, three hours after a dawn attack dropped another bomb nearby. The ruling Taliban claimed 12 people were killed in another strike in northern Afghanistan.

In the second Kabul strike, at about 9:30 a.m. (0500 gmt) Monday, Taliban gunners responded again with anti–aircraft fire. There were no immediate reports of casualties.

But in a separate strike early Monday, in Badgus province in western Afghanistan, the Taliban said 12 people died and 32 were wounded. The claim came from Taliban Information Ministry officials in Kabul.

No further information was immediately available, and the claims could not be independently verified.
