Suicide Bombers Target Police Stations In Kabul

Three suicide bombers have targeted two police stations in the Afghan capital, wounding several people, an Interior Ministry official says.

The first suicide bomber struck a station in the western part of the city on May 9, according to Interior Ministry spokesman Najib Danesh, who added there was sporadic gunfire after the blast during a "cleanup operation."

Danesh said another two suicide bombers struck at the entrance of a police station in the city center.

Danesh said he could only confirm that two people had been hospitalized with injuries resulting from the attacks. However, the head of the Kabul ambulance service told the AP news agency that six people had been taken to hospitals with injuries.

The Taliban and an Islamic State (IS) affiliate have carried out a series of massive attacks in Kabul in recent months.

Twin suicide bombings in Kabul on April 30 claimed by IS militants killed at least 25 people, including nine journalists who had rushed to the scene of the first attack.

Among the dead were two RFE/RL journalists and a RFE/RL trainee.
