    Afghan security forces end a standoff with Taliban militants who've attacked the main election commission's compound in Kabul.

    Police say all assailants have been killed in the clashes. The militants broke into a nearby building and opened fire at the election commission. Our correspondent says over a dozen rocket-propelled grenades were fired by Taliban militants. The attack comes a week before presidential election in Afghanistan which the Taliban have vowed to disrupt.
