Cabinet ministers approved by Afghanistan's parliament were sworn in at the presidential palace, an official said, while one of the worst attacks on Kabul raged outside the gates. At least five people were killed and almost 40 wounded, officials said, when Taliban-linked militants stormed the center of Kabul at the height of the morning rush hour. UPI/Hossein Fatemi
