Afghan Taliban narco-jihadis issued a statement saying they had restarted peace negotiations with U.S. officials “hours” after they carried out a brazen attack on Monday that left at least 45 members of Afghanistan’s intelligence agency dead at a military base near Kabul.

The attack, which some media organizations believe killed upwards of 100 people, took place at the Maidan Shahr intelligence training center in the capital of Maidan Wardak province outside Kabul.

According to the Associated Press (AP), the new round of U.S.-Taliban negotiations is expected to carry into Tuesday.
