At Least 19 People Are Killed In Attack On Kabul University, 4

Unknown armed assailants stormed the Kabul University in the Afghan capital on Monday following multiple blasts and gunfight.

Eyewitnesses stated that multiple armed assailants entered the university building in Kabul through the northern gate, causing chaos with students running for their lives. Two attackers were eliminated. 25 people have been reported as casualty 28 people have been injured.

“They [attackers] began shooting indiscriminately at everyone in their sight,” an eyewitness said.

Interior Ministry spokesman Tariq Arian said in a statement the rapid response unit of the police has reached the spot. “Details will follow soon,” he said.

The attack took place as a book exhibition by the Afghan and Iranian publishers was underway at the Kabul University.

Violence amid Afghan peace talks

Three suicide bombers detonated their explosives-loaded vehicles targeting the base in Khost, the city's police chief Ghulam Daud Tarakhil told AFP, before other assailants tried to storm the compound.

A fierce firefight that lasted for almost nine hours between the militants and security forces ended with the killing of seven other militants, Tarakhil said.

Violence has raged across Afghanistan in recent weeks even as the Taliban and Afghan government remain engaged in peace talks to end the country's long-running conflict.

In 2018, a suicide bomber had killed dozens of people, many of them teenagers, in front of Kabul university in an attack also claimed by Daesh
