3. After a week in which "Taliban militants kill dozens at Afghan intelligence base"

Dozens of Afghan security staff were killed by Taliban militants who overran a military intelligence base near Kabul, officials have confirmed.

At least 43 people were killed and 54 injured in Monday's attack, the NDS intelligence service told the BBC.

Insurgents blew their way into the base using a car bomb before opening fire. Some reports put the toll at over 100.

It is one of the deadliest attacks on the secret service and follows a string of battlefield setbacks for the army.

That is, apparently, "significant progress".
