Military officials say that Taliban fighters know they can't match Western militaries in a heads-up battle, which leads the insurgents to more often rely on roadside and suicide bombs.

This new assault by the Taliban comes on the heels of President Bush's meeting over the weekend with Afghan President Hamid Karzai.

The two leaders pledged to fight terrorism and stabilize Afghanistan.

Taliban spokesman, Qari Yousef Ahmadi, said the meeting between Karzai and Bush had "no result," and that militant prisoners must be released in exchange for the lives of South Korean hostages or there will be a "bad result.
