Taliban destroy Afghan US base warehouse

Taliban insurgents have destroyed a warehouse holding supplies for the United States' main base of Bagram in Afghanistan. Rocket propelled grenades were used in the attack, which local police said was launched overnight, causing a large fire which burned well into the next day, consuming a large stock of food supplies. No-one was injured in the attack, which comes as part of an increase in Taliban assaults targeting US forces in the country ahead of the planned pullout in December 2014 of all American and NATO troops. Recent reports from police commanders in Afghanistan suggest that Al Qaeda is planning a comeback in the country to coincide with coalition forces leaving.
