Afghan soldiers stand in front of the bodies of three Taliban insurgents on an upper floor of a 14-story building where six heavily armed Taliban fighters were killed after waging a battle against the U.S. embassy and NATO headquarters in Kabul, Afghanistan, September 14, 2011. Afghan and Coalition security forces moved from floor to floor, occasionally taking fire, as they fought to gain complete control of the structure.
