US and Afghan officials say they are committed to talks with the Taliban, despite an assault on a CIA station and government buildings on Monday.

 

The White House said President Barack Obama and counterpart Hamid Karzai had spoken following the attack, and had "reaffirmed" their commitment.

 

Taliban militants launched the attack with gunfire and bombs early on Monday.

 

Security forces repelled them, but four insurgents and three security guards were killed.
