RIO DE JANEIRO, Aug. 12 (Xinhua) -- Russia rallied past France 45-41 in a thrilling men's foil team final to win the country's fifth Olympic gold medal in Rio on Friday.

France, which overwhelmed defending champion Italy 45-30 in the semifinal, led 25-16 after five rounds. Russia stormed back with Alexey Cheremisinov cutting the deficit to 25-30 in the sixth round before Artur Akhumatkhuzin outscored Jean-Paul Tony Helissey 10-3 to come 40-38 up in the eighth.

Cheremisinov beat Erwan Le Pechoux 5-3 to seal the third fencing gold for Russia here, which claimed its second Olympic title in the men's team foil since Atlanta 1996.

"We believed in our victory. Until the last touch has been made, you have not yet lost," said Akhumatkhuzin. "The experience of previous years in similar situations played a role. This is sport, it can happen. There were examples when we won and when others caught up."

France still shares the record with Italy for the most gold medals in the men's foil team event with seven each.

"I think we can be happy for this final and for this day because we fenced well in the quarterfinal and the semifinal, and Russia's a very strong team," said Le Pechoux.

The United States claimed the bronze by beating Italy 45-31, earning its first medal in the men's team foil since 1932.

KABUL Nike Air Max 97 Ultra '17 Pas Cher , Feb. 23 (Xinhua) -- Taliban militants who have been fighting to regain power in Afghanistan, in a dreadful attack on Afghan soldiers killed 19 personnel of Afghan National Army (ANA) in Kunar province 180 km east of Kabul on Sunday, provincial governor Shuja Al-Mulk Jalala said.

"Nineteen army soldiers were killed when Taliban militants launched an attack on an army checkpoint in Ghazi Abad district of Kunar overnight early Sunday morning," Jalala told newsmen.

He also confirmed that the militants had taken away eight more soldiers to unknown place.

The deadly offensive took place amid ongoing peace efforts by the Afghan government to convince Taliban outfit to give up fighting and join the political mainstream.

According to the government-backed peace body the High Peace Council (HPC) Nike Air Max 97 Off White Pas Cher , a delegation of the entity held talks with the Taliban delegation in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) on Saturday.

"The meeting with Taliban was a follow-up to recent talks in Dubai, an initiative of Taliban finance minister Agha Jan Mustasim, " quoting a statement of HPC, the English newspaper the Daily Outlook reported on Sunday.

According to the newspaper Nike Air VaporMax Flyknit Femme Pas Cher , HPC in the statement also stated that "wide ranging talks on Afghanistan's current situation, ways of ending the war and taking the peace process forward had been held with a four-member Taliban group in Dubai very recently and both sides agreed to continue the talks until reaching a negotiated settlement of the conflict."

Ironically, the Taliban outfit, in a statement posted on its website has rejected any talks with the government Nike Air VaporMax Flyknit Homme Pas Cher , noting Agha Jan cannot represent Taliban leadership in any talks.

Some 100 armed Taliban fighters, according to Abdul Ghani Ghani, the spokesman for provincial administration, attended in Sunday's barefaced and bloodiest attack.

Zabihullah Mujahid Nike Air VaporMax Homme Pas Cher , who claimed to speak for the Taliban outfit in talks with media, via telephone from unknown location confirmed the attack on Afghan army base in Kunar and claimed that 25 Afghan soldiers were killed and eight captured, while only two Taliban fighters lost their lives in the firefight lasted for a while.

The deadly attack against Afghan soldiers is taking place amid strained relations between Kabul and Washington over the delay in inking Bilateral Security Agreement (BSA) and the preparation of NATO-led forces to end combat mission by the end of 2014 in Afghanistan.

China took reporters on Thursday on an unusual trip to a camp which housed Western prisoners of the Japanese in World War Two, a further sign of Beijing broadening efforts to drive a wedge between the West and Japan over its wartime past.

The visit comes as tensions between Asia's two largest economies rise to a fever pitch Nike Air VaporMax Utility Pas Cher , and China works to convince the world of its viewpoint that Japan's war-era militarism is directly linked to its current military build-up.

China's ties with Japan have long been poisoned by what Beijing sees as Tokyo's failure to atone for its occupation of parts of China before and during World War Two.

China consistently reminds its people of Japan's historical brutality, such as the 1937 Nanjing Massacre in which Japanese troops killed 300,000 people in the then national capital.

Beijing is now stepping up efforts to take its message to the West, especially aimed at the United States Nike Air VaporMax Plus Pas Cher , Britain and other Western nations who fought with China against Japan.

At the former prisoner of war camp outside the industrial north-eastern city of Shenyang, reporters were shown graphic images of the terrible conditions endured by some 2,000 prisoners from the United States, Australia Nike Air Vapormax Moc Pas Cher , Canada, New Zealand and the Netherlands.
