US military struggles to track weapons for Afghans

The United States has been shoveling weapons into the hands of Afghan troops but has no firm system in place or enough personnel to ensure they do not wind up in the hands of Taliban fighters, according to a new independent study.

The report, obtained by The Associated Press, came to light Wednesday as Kabul underwent a devastating attack by heavily armed militants. The fighters stormed three government buildings of the fortified capital, killing 20 people and wounding 57 others.

Afghanistan officials said the eight attackers _ armed with Kalashnikov rifles, grenades and explosive vests _ died in the assault, bringing the death toll to 28.

Women more expressive in texting
