Suicide Bombers Target Police Stations In Kabul

Following the first blast, Danish said, two explosions occurred close to PD10 Police Headquarters' compound in Shahr-e-Naw area, in downtown Kabul.

The eight suicide bombers involved in the two attacks struck two police stations in Kabul. Following this blast, gunmen exchanged fire with security personnel at other places, which looked like a well-coordinated attack.
