Seven people are dead and many others injured following a blatant attack on the US and UK embassies in Kabul. A group of insurgents took a control of a high rise building in the diplomatic area of the Afghan capital, and fired rockets at a number of buildings including NATO and International Security headquarters. The attack comes in the midst of the transition of responsibility for security from NATO for Afghan forces. Jay Cameron works for an NGO in Kabul. He told Catherine Zengerer more about the attacks.
