Seven attackers killed as Afghan forces stave off major terror bid
Gen Daud Amin, the Kabul police chief, said seven attackers were killed and that cleanup operations were underway in the attack that left one cop injured as well - implying that the attack was majorly thwarted.
Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said the group was responsible for the attack, which took place in the province’s capital, Pol-e Alam.
Twelve other people, including four police officers and eight civilians, were wounded in the attack, said provincial police chief Mohmmad Abdali.
Another report portrayed a gloomy picture about the attack, saying a total of six police officers were killed in the attack, which began when a suicide bomber detonated an explosives-laden vehicle close to the police building.
The suicide bombers then tried to gatecrash the compound, but were shot and killed by security forces; the response by security forces is being lauded on a wide scale.
