The Taliban made good on their promise to unleash an annual spring offensive Monday, storming a government building in the east and striking a police checkpoint to the south, killing nine policemen. Last week, the Taliban brashly scheduled their assault, vowing "backbreaking martyrdom strikes" and insider attacks. Rockets hit inside the grounds of the Kabul international airport but caused no damage.
