Afghan insurgents could increasingly target the country's security forces ahead of the withdrawal of foreign troops, according to NATO. The warning comes after suicide bombers and gunmen attacked a police building in the capital Kabul.
Taliban suicide bombers have targeted a police building in the Afghan capital Kabul, sparking a gun battle with several other attackers. The raid started early this morning after a car bomb was set off at the gate of the traffic department in Kabul.
Police say another two or three attackers armed with suicide vests and weapons then entered the compound. It is the second raid inside Kabul in less than a week.
Three suicide bombers and a powerful car bomb took aim at the headquarters of the Kabul traffic department, followed by a clash between at least one insurgent and security forces, Afghanistan police said.
It is unclear whether there were any casualties in the attack, which happened just days after six suicide bombers targeted the Afghan spy agency.
The Taliban has claimed responsibility for today's attack.
At least three suicide bombers have launched an attack on an Afghanistan government building in Kabul and a gun battle with security forces is ongoing, Afghan police told Reuters.
