Rockets rain, truck bomb found ahead of Afghan vote

Rockets rained on Afghan cities and military posts and a huge truck bomb was seized as the war-weary nation prepared for Saturday’s historic presidential elections under the threat of further militant attacks. The embassy district in the capital Kabul was among the targets as more than two dozen rockets were fired around the country in a 24-hour period, Major Scott Nelson, a spokesman for the US-led coalition told AFP. Remnants of the fundamentalist Islamic Taliban regime ousted by the US-led invasion in late 2001, and Osama bin Laden’s Al-Qaeda group have vowed to disrupt the vote. Group Profile
