The US Embassy compound in Kabul, Afghanistan, was hit by a rocket during the first few minutes of the 18th anniversary of 9/11 on Wednesday.

No official information on the casualties has yet been reported.

Relations between the U.S. and the Taliban took a hit on Monday after Donald Trump scrapped negotiations aiming to secure a ceasefire in Afghanistan.

"If they can not agree to a ceasefire during these very important peace talks, and would even kill 12 innocent people, then they probably don't have the power to negotiate a meaningful agreement anyway", the USA president said in one of his tweets.

Many fear his cancellation of negotiations will bring more carnage as the US and Taliban, as well as Afghan forces, step up their offensives and everyday people die in the crossfire.

For almost a year, US envoy Zalmay Khalilzad has been negotiating with the Taliban on issues including a USA troop withdrawal and Taliban guarantees to keep Afghanistan from again becoming a launch pad for global terror attacks.


On Monday, US President Donald Trump said that US peace talks with the Taliban were "dead" after the group claimed responsibility for an attack that killed a US service member in Kabul on 5 September. "The last time hearing those precious words, 'I love you, '" said Trump, who began the day observing a moment of silence on the South Lawn with first lady Melania Trump and White House staff.

Recent informal talks between the Taliban and representatives of Afghan society in Doha and Moscow addressed some key issues for peace, Yamamoto said.

Rice said that the president's cancellation of the talks "was a good decision". I want to look them in the eye. Nor has the United States.

"If the Taliban don't behave, if they don't deliver on the commitments that they've made to us now for weeks, and in some cases months, the president is not going to reduce the pressure, we're not going to reduce our support for the Afghan security forces that have fought so hard there in Afghanistan", Pompeo said, according to the news agency. "Over the last four days, we (US troops) have hit our enemy harder than they have ever been hit before".

During a visit to Afghanistan on September 9, U.S. Marine General Kenneth McKenzie, the head of U.S. Central Command, indicated to reporters that the United States was likely to increase operations against the Taliban.
