Gunmen mounted coordinated attacks in the Afghan capital Kabul Wednesday, battling security forces for hours in the city's main commercial area after three large explosions sent plumes of smoke and dust into the sky.At least seven people were killed, including two police, and 17 were wounded in the incident, health officials said. It was the latest in a string of attacks that have caused hundreds of casualties in Kabul since the beginning of the year.With preparations for elections now underway across much of the country, more attacks are expected on voter registration centers following a blast in one center last month in which 60 people lining up for identity cards were killed.
