A suicide bomb attack and subsequent gunfire outside the Pakistani Consulate in Jalalabad killed at least seven Afghan security personnel on Wednesday. The attack took place not far away from the Indian Consulate located in an area which houses foreign missions.
The suicide bomber blew himself up outside the Pakistani consulate and the bombing was followed by gunfire from unidentified terrorists. Afghan security forces swiftly responded to the attack and engaged with the gunmen barricaded in a house near the Pakistan Consulate. The gunbattle continued for nearly four hours.
"Seven of our security forces were killed and seven others wounded as a result of the terrorist attack," Interior Ministry spokesman Sediq Sediqqi said on Twitter. It was not clear how many terrorists had been killed.
