Transcript for At least 10 killed, dozens injured in Paris apartment inferno
tonight on the war in Afghanistan. 14,000 American troops still there. America's longest war. It was last night here, our exclusive reporting from kabul, from our trip over the weekend. Our interview with the top U.S. Commander, four-star general Scott Miller. He told us about talks with Taliban under way, telling me any end-game will be political, not from the military. And tonight, we've learned that members of the Taliban are back at the negotiating table again, this time with prominent Afghan members. Talks in Moscow today. And those talks come after this. ABC news obtaining these images while we were in kabul, of an assault just weeks ago, Taliban members with their hands in the air. General Miller telling me they will keep up the pressure on the Taliban to keep the Taliban at the table. Also overseas tonight, a deadly fire in Paris, traching people in an apartment building. Many did not get out. At least ten people are dead tonight, amild new questions. Was the fire started over an argument with a neighbor? Here's ABC's James Longman. Reporter: One of the deadliest fires Paris has seen in years. At least ten confirmed dead and dozens injured in this six-hour raging inferno. Look at strength of the blaze. Orange and purple flames shooting out of windows. Access nearly impossible. Residents winched to safety, some rescued from the roof. "People were screaming for their lives," says this witness. "The flames were coming from everywhere." Over 200 firefighters on the scene, pushing through the smoke, risking their lives to save those trapped. And tonight, a 40-year-old woman is in custody for suspected arson. A resident of the building with psychiatric issues, it's reported she started the fire after an argument with a neighbor. Police stopped her as she tried to set light to a car outside the block. The woman, who is thought to have a number of run-ins with police, is now being held at a psychiatric unit, where she is to undergo medical tests. David? James, thank you.
