Afghan police men take up positions as Taliban militants attacked the main Afghan election commission's headquarters in the outskirts of Kabul, Afghanistan, firing on the compound with rocket-propelled grenades and heavy machine guns from a house outside its perimeter wall, Saturday, March 29, 2014. Dozens of employees and other people who had been inside the Independent Election Commission compound took cover in the basement, and no casualties were reported. But two warehouses were hit and set on fire, witnesses said. (AP Photo/Anja Niedringhaus)
