Kabul: Two Afghan workers for the Iraqi Embassy killed in attack

Kabul [Afghanistan]: Two Afghan workers for the Iraqi Embassy in Kabul were killed on Monday after few gunmen launched an attack.

Najib Danish, a spokesman for the Afghan Interior Ministry, has said three police officers were also wounded in the attack.

Danish said a suicide bomber blew up the gates at about 11:30 a.m. on Monday, after which three gunmen entered the Embassy’s grounds and began firing.

Afghan special forces were called in and they succeeded in killing all of them.

Iraqi diplomats were taken to a safe place.

Earlier in May, a blast in Kabul’s diplomatic quarter killed as many as 150 people, and injured hundreds, including children.

In July, at least 31 people were left dead after a car bombing claimed by the Taliban. (ANI)
