afghanistan: Afghan forces repel Taliban attack on key city: officials – Times of India

KUNDUZ, AFGHANISTAN: Afghan security forces on Tuesday repelled a fierce Taliban attack on Kunduz, officials said, a strategic city in northern Afghanistan that had briefly fallen to the militants twice in the past. Taliban fighters attacked several outposts of Afghan forces on the outskirts of the city at around 1:00 am, triggering fierce fighting, a defence ministry statement said. "With the support of air force their attack was repelled. Eleven Taliban were killed and eight wounded," it said, adding that the fighting lasted for several hours. Both sides have repeatedly clashed in rural areas in recent months, but an attempt to enter a city like Kunduz is seen as a serious escalation.

European auto market hit by record sales plunge – Times of India

PARIS: Europe's auto market suffered a record plunge in April according to sector data released on Tuesday, and is unlikely to make up the loss this year, an analyst said.

New car registrations had already fallen by an annualised 55.1 percent in March, owing to the impact of the coronavirus, the ACEA noted. Even when the figures were smoothed out over the four months from January through April, sales were ...
