Afghanistan's government and police said on Monday that all fighting with insurgents had ended after 18 hours of fierce fighting across the capital that began on Sunday.

The latest information we have about the Afghan Parliament area is that the attack is over now and the only insurgent who was resisting has been killed, said the Kabul police chief's spokesman Hashmatullah Stanikzai.
