Taliban kills four U.S. soldiers after Obama administration announces formal talks

The Taliban claimed responsibility on Wednesday for a deadly overnight attack on Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan, just hours after the Obama administration announced that it would begin formal talks with the group, the AFP reported. Four U.S. soldiers were killed in the attack.

"Last night two big rockets were launched at Bagram (air base) which hit the target. Four soldiers are dead and six others are wounded. The rockets caused a major fire," a Taliban spokesman told the AFP.

A pentagon official also confirmed that four Americans were killed during an overnight rocket attack at Bagram Airbase.

Bagram Air Base is the largest US-led military base in Afghanistan and is situated just 30 miles north of Kabul, the capital.
