Afghans, Taliban Agree to Three-Day Cease-Fire

The Taliban announced a three-day cease-fire to coincide with the Muslim Eid al-Fitr holiday that begins Sunday, a move that was welcomed by the Afghan government after weeks of deadly clashes in the country.

If the truce goes ahead as planned, it could be the first shift to a period of reduced violence in months, after the Taliban agreed to curb attacks earlier this year.
