Trump cancels Taliban peace talks

From Morning Report, 6:44 am on 9 September 2019

The U.S President, Donald Trump, said on Saturday that Taliban leaders were on their way to the US for secret peace talks - but the meeting was cancelled and he's called off peace talks with the militant group entirely. Mr Trump tweeted that he scrapped the meeting after the Taliban took credit for an attack in Kabul that killed a dozen people, including an American soldier.
