Afghan forces thwart attack on training center in Kabul

Heavily armed militants attacked an Afghan intelligence agency facility in Kabul Monday, sparking fierce clashes with security forces.

The Daesh attack on a training center of the NDS in Afshar area of PD5 capital Kabul on Monday ended after six hours of clashes with security forces, security officials said.

"They were well hidden in buildings under construction".

Nasrat Rahimi, the deputy spokesman for the Interior Ministry, told Anadolu Agency that all three attackers have been killed and two policemen have sustained minor injuries.

The slain officer was the district police commander, Sarwari added. "It (the attack) happened suddenly. the police arrived in the area fast and blocked the roads, not allowing anyone to get to their homes", Naweed, a student, told AFP.

Daesh claimed responsibility for the attack.

Islamic State claimed responsibility in a statement on its Amaq news agency, in which it said two of its fighters had attacked an intelligence agency center in Kabul.

No-one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, which took place in the provincial capital, Lashkar Gah.

Elsewhere in the country, a Taliban suicide attacker detonated a auto bomb in the southern city of Lashkar Gah, capital of Helmand province, late Monday killing at least two civilians and wounding 30 people.

In another attack yesterday, in the southern Helmand province, a suicide auto bomber struck a police convoy, killing two people and wounding 29 others, including civilians, said Abdul Salam Afghan, spokesman for the provincial police chief.

Helmand police chief Ghafar Sapay said 12 of the wounded were police personnel.

Earlier, an Afghan official said a Taliban attack on Sunday killed a police officer and wounded three others in western Badghis province.
