Afghan president slams Taliban; rockets target Kabul palace
KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — At least three rockets hit near the presidential palace on Tuesday shortly before Afghan President Ashraf Ghani was to give an address to mark the major Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha. There were no injuries and the rockets landed outside the heavily fortified palace grounds, said Mirwais Stanikzai, spokesman for the interior minister.

One car parked on a nearby street was completely destroyed; the police said it was used as launching pad for the rockets.
