Terror strikes Kabul as a gunmen attacked the American University of Afghanistan during classes Wednesday evening, setting off an explosion and trapping students and professors inside the building many flown away safely.
Bullet and Guns were firing in abandon in the campus creating a tough call for police to retaliate.
At least seven person was killed in the attack and 26 were injured, according to Wahidullah Majrooh, a spokesman for the Health Ministry. About 40 students had managed to escape the building after the attack began around 7 p.m., a police source said.
“We believe that two assailants have been inside; our forces are trying to find their exact location and engage,” said Sediq Sediqqi, a spokesman for the Interior Ministry.
“It’s not over yet. As soon as we see injured people, we’ve been helping them get out.”
ISIS and Taliban trying to disrupt the development and peace in the global context with focus on Kabul. A learning center attack is not at all any act of holy war but act of devil.
We strongly condemn the attack on American University in Kabul. Condolences to the bereaved families & prayers with the injured.
