The Taliban said an attack on a high-level security meeting in Afghanistan on Thursday had targeted top US commander General Scott Miller, who NATO said survived the shooting.

"The target was General Miller and General Raziq," Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said on Twitter.

Abdul Raziq, the police chief in the southern province of Kandahar, was killed in the attack, Afghan officials said.
