Multiple blasts rock Afghan capital Kabul

Series of blasts hits Kabul casualties feared

The fighters then climbed an adjacent tall building that was under construction, according to a local police commander, and continued their attack from there.

Suicide bombers struck two police stations in Afghanistan's capital on Wednesday, killing at least five people and wounding 16, officials said.

The representative of the Afghan interior Ministry Najib Danesh told that two police stations in Kabul were attacked by three suicide bombers.

At least six injured were shifted to hospital by rescue teams after the attacks. The Islamic State group claimed responsibility.

Second explosion happened in Shahr-e-Naw area, in Kabul's PD10 area, reports said.

One assailant blew himself up while the other was challenged and gunned down by security forces, Barmak said.

Gunfire was also reported during the "cleanup operation" following the blast.

Several more blasts were also followed by gunfire near the police station in the Shahr-e Now neighborhood, a busy commercial district with several fortified compounds headquartering worldwide aid groups and Afghan government agencies.

Islamic State, through its Amaq News Agency, took responsibility for plotting the violence, though it provided no evidence to substantiate the claim. "Two policemen also lost their lives and two policemen are wounded", Estanakzai said.

These two instances are two comparatively small twin bombings in a line of multiple other recent attacks by IS and the Taliban in cities like Kabul with "Western-backed government and security forces".

Provincial police spokesman Abdul Karim Yuresh said the fighting was still underway and that government forces still held the compound.

Majroh said one person was killed and eight others wounded.

Mohammad Hashim, a member of parliament from Faryab province, said the Taliban captured the district headquarters in Bilchirgh early Wednesday after more than 40 security forces retreated under heavy fire.

This is just the latest of many attacks that have rocked Afghanistan since mid-April, when registration for the country's October parliamentary elections opened.
