CNN World News - Taliban siege in central Kabul ends, Sep 14, 2011


STORY HIGHLIGHTS
  • NEW: One policeman and two civilians were killed in four incidents
  • NEW: 27 people were injured in the different incidents
  • U.S. ambassador to Afghanistan says the Haqqani network is behind the attacks
  • Security forces kill six militants in the embassy attack
Kabul, Afghanistan (CNN) -- A nearly day-long Taliban siege on the U.S. Embassy and NATO command center in Kabul ended early Wednesday, Afghan and NATO officials said.
A policeman and two civilians were killed and 21 civilians were injured, the Interior Ministry said. Six militants have been killed and the building they were firing from has been cleared, the ministry said.
The strike in central Kabul began Tuesday amid intelligence that insurgents might launch a high-profile attack in the capital around the 10th anniversary of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks against the United States, a coalition officer and a senior official of NATO's International Security Assistance Force confirmed to CNN.
Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid told CNN that his group targeted "the U.S. Embassy, governmental organizations and other foreign organizations."
ISAF said after insurgents attacked the targets Tuesday afternoon "with small arms fire from outside the secure zone surrounding these compounds," Afghan security forces "responded immediately."

Afghan National Army helicopters provided air support. Afghan and international troops "trapped the insurgents in the partially-constructed, multi-story building they were using as a firing position, and conducted a methodical, floor-by-floor clearing operation," ISAF said.
Central Kabul is considered a high-security area, and it is protected by police and other security forces.
ISAF said six of its personnel were wounded in operations through the day Tuesday.
Casualties occurred in three incidents Tuesday in other parts of the city, the Interior Ministry said. Three police officers were killed and six people -- three police and three civilians -- were injured in suicide attacks.
U.S. Ambassador to Afghanistan Ryan Crocker said he believes the Haqqani network -- a pro-Taliban militant group based in Pakistan's North Waziristan region -- was behind the attacks in Kabul and another in Afghanistan's Wardak province over the weekend.
Crocker played down the significance of the incidents as he spoke to reporters Wednesday, describing the attack on the U.S. Embassy as "harassment rather than a direct attack."
"If that's the best they can do, you know, I think it's actually a statement of their weakness and more importantly since Kabul is in the hands of Afghan security it's a real credit to the Afghan National Security Forces," he said. "They are the ones that took down the building and took down those attackers."

CBS World News - Cuba: U.S. embargo causes $1 trillion in losses. Sep 14, 2011


"Cuba blames the U.S. embargo for nearly a trillion dollars in losses to the island's economy since it was imposed by President Kennedy in 1962.
Vice Foreign Minister Abelardo Moreno said that at current prices a conservative estimate of economic damages to the island up until December 2010 would be more than $104 billion. However, he added, if you take into consideration the extreme devaluation of the dollar against the price of gold on the international financial market during 2010, they would add up to nearly a trillion dollars.
Cuba will be presenting a resolution at the current U.N. General Assembly on the "Necessity of ending the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the United States of America against Cuba."
This will be the 20th time the same resolution is put to a vote there. It has repeatedly been approved by the international community. Last year's vote was: 185 countries in favor to 2 -- the United States and Israel -- against."

MONEY MORNING - As Greek Debt Default Nears, Investors Need to Take Cover, Sep 14, 2011

As Greek Debt Default Nears, Investors Need to Take Cover - Money Morning: "SEPTEMBER 14, 2011
BY DAVID ZEILER, Associate Editor, Money Morning
At this point a Greek debt default is virtually unavoidable, and it could happen in a matter of weeks.
The ensuing chain reaction will upend markets around the world and will almost surely lead to more defaults among the European Union's (EU) other debt-plagued nations, collectively known as the PIIGS (Portugal, Ireland, Italy, Greece and Spain).
The bond markets have already passed sentence, with the yield on two-year Greek bonds spiking to an astronomical 76% yesterday (Tuesday). Yields on 10-year Greek bonds rose to 24%.
By comparison, the 10-year bond yields of another PIIGS nation, Italy, rose to 5.74%. Meanwhile, bond yields for the EU's strongest economy, Germany, have dropped below 2%.
The credit default swap (CDS) markets, where investors can insure their bond purchases against default, agree with the bond markets' verdict. As of Monday it cost $5.8 million and $100,000 annually to insure $10 million worth of Greek debt for five years, which means the CDS market now considers default a 98% probability."
