Three rockets hit Afghan capital-police

Residents inspect a damaged home in Kabul after a rocket struck here on Tuesday. Afghan authorities say three rockets hit the capital - one near the Afghan intelligence agency, another near the airport highway and a third near a private television station. Mohammad Asif is the owner of the home. (SOUNDBITE) (Dari) DAMAGED HOUSE OWNER MOHAMMAD ASIF SAYING: "I heard a terrible 'bang', I ran towards my mother and she was yelling after the rocket hit our house. We have taken the women of the family out of the house, not sure if it was a rocket or some other artillery that landed on our house, and you have seen the debris." Onlookers gather around the site of another rocket strike on farm land across the street from the Afghan intelligence agency. The rockets were launched by insurgents on the eastern outskirts of the city. Three civilians were wounded in the joint-attacks and one is in critical condition. The rocket attacks are a reminder of Afghanistan's security challenges as most NATO combat troops prepare to withdraw by the end of 2014.
