Three attackers have stormed the ministry of telecommunications on Saturday noon and one of them is, now, changing fires with the Afghan security forces, a security source told reporters.

A source from the Ministry of Interior said that the first suicide attacker blew himself up near the entrance of the ministry to clear the way for the other two attackers.

According to the source, the second attacker was gunned down by the security forces but the third one is still changing fires with the forces from inside the building.

The armed attacker is said to have entered the central “post office” located in the eastern part of the building.

The area blocked by the security forces and the shops around the ministry building have been evacuated.

Afghan Special Forces cordoned off the area.

There is not yet any information about possible casualties.
