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.
