At least five people, including a policeman, were killed in Afghanistan’s Ghazni city on Wednesday after a suspected group of Taliban suicide bombers attacked the provincial Appeal Court compound.

Four suicide bombers were also killed in the process and twelve others, including a woman, injured. Aminullah Amarkhil, the provincial police chief said that the gunfight ensued, which resulted in the death of all attackers.

“The first attacker wanted to detonate a car bomb near the Appeal Court to open a way for other attackers [but was stopped by security]. Security forces defused the bomb. All other attackers were killed when they attacked security forces,” Tolo News quoted him as saying.

He added, “The head of the Appeal Court was also slightly injured in the attack.” So far, no group, including the Taliban, has claimed responsibility for the attack.
