Kabul: According to unconfirmed reports, a government spokesperson said that on Thursday, a suicide bomber was killed at the entrance of a passport office in the Afghan capital Kabul, and several people were injured in the explosion.
A spokesperson for the Afghan Ministry of Interior said the attacker was shot and killed while trying to enter the passport office.
One member of the Taliban who was a witness told Reuters multiple people were injured, and the building and streets around the area were locked down by Taliban security forces.
Large crowds of Afghans have been thronging outside the passport office in a bid to get travel documents in recent days after the service was restarted after weeks of suspension.
Officials said Thursday is a special day for Taliban officials to visit the passport office to prepare travel documents.
