U.S. Secretary of State Kerry arrives in Afghanistan for diplomatic talks after his plane landed at Kabul International airportU.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said on Friday he hoped to be able to find a solution to Afghanistan's disputed election but cautioned "we can't say that's an automatic at this point". "We are at a very, very critical moment for Afghanistan," Kerry said hours after he arrived in the Afghan capital for a hastily arranged visit. "The election legitimacy hangs in the balance, the future potential of the transition hangs in the balance, so we have a lot to do." Kerry will meet rival presidential candidates Abdullah Abdullah and Ashraf Ghani, incumbent President Hamid Karzai and other senior officials, including U.N special representative Jan Kubis.

At least two rockets were fired on Friday from southern Lebanon into Israel, Lebanon's news agency and security sources said, adding that it was unclear who had fired them. Southern Lebanon is a stronghold of Hezbollah, a Shi'ite Muslim group that battled Israel seven years ago and is engaged in Syria's civil war in support of President Bashar al-Assad. The news agency NNA, citing its correspondent in Tyre, said the rockets were fired towards "occupied territories" at 6.30 a.m. (0030 ET) from the Hasbaya area in Lebanon. In December, rockets launched from south Lebanon struck northern Israel, provoking a response across a border that had been largely quiet since a war in 2006.
