KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — A brazen attack by gunmen who stormed the Kabul University has left at least 19 dead and 22 wounded in the Afghan capital. The assault sparked a hours-long gun battle on the school's campus on Monday. The Interior Ministry says all three attackers were ultimately killed in the ensuing firefight at the country's largest school. There was no immediate claim of responsibility but the Taliban issued a statement denying they took part in the assault. The attack came as the insurgents are continuing peace talks with the U.S.-backed government in Qatar, with the aim to help the U.S. finally withdraw from Afghanistan.
