   KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) - The Taliban say they have captured a military dog belonging to NATO forces in Afghanistan, releasing a video of the canine wearing a high-tech harness.
   Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid said Friday that the dog was captured during a battle about a month ago in Laghman province, east of the capital, Kabul.
   The insurgents sent by email a video showing a brown dog held on a leash by a Taliban fighter. It wore a harness mounted with a video camera and a voiceover said the dog was being called "Colonel."
   Mujahid said by telephone that the dog is in good health and is not being mistreated.
   The NATO-led coalition in Afghanistan confirmed Friday that one of its military dogs went missing during a mission in December. It gave no other details.

   KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) - Afghan authorities say a battle with insurgents near Kabul's international airport has ended and all the attackers have been killed. A Ministry of Interior spokesman says two civilians were wounded in Monday's attack that was apparently targeting NATO's airport headquarters. The attackers had rocket-propelled grenades, assault rifles and at least one large bomb.

   A deputy Kabul police chief says there were seven attackers. Two blew themselves up with suicide vests and five were shot and killed by police.

   It was unclear if the attack had damaged facilities inside the airport. The attackers had taken over a four- to five- story building under construction nearby.

   The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack.

   It was the latest in a series of attacks against the capital this year.
