Insurgents Attack Kabul Airport

Afghan officials say security forces have killed three of at least five insurgents who attacked Kabul's main airport early Monday.

Authorities say the attack began before dawn with explosions and gunfire focused on the military side of the facility.

Militants then occupied a nearby building under construction and were firing toward the airport, which serves as a base for coalition forces.  Civilian flights were halted because of the violence.

The Taliban has claimed responsibility for the attack.
