Kabul under attack?

The BBC is reporting a series of suicide bomber/gunman attacks targeting government buildings this morning. Anyone in the sandbox heard anything? Sonic93? Denny? Everybody Ok over there?

Give me a dollar.

Check, all is well with me but I am 120km from Kabul right now.

I saw the traffic on our internal net but no real details yet. One of my favorite coworkers is right there in the middle of Kabul near the embassy and what not. I need to check in with him for details. get back to you shortly.

Just talked to my buddy. He is a block from the presidential palace and said it was poppin off for 2-3 hours. Lots of full auto and lots of explosions. He is three stories up and has a great view. He said it was nuts for a few hours.
