Officials said Wednesday a suicide bomber struck outside the Interior Ministry in the capital, allowing gunmen to pass through an outer gate where they traded fire with security forces, who eventually killed all the attackers.

Special forces rushed to the scene after the attackers detonated what police said was a auto bomb at the first checkpoint leading to the ministry, then tried to battle their way inside. Interior ministry spokesman Najib Danish said one policeman was killed and five were wounded. All 10 attackers - three suicide bombers and seven gunmen - were killed by security forces, the Interior Ministry confirmed. The Amaq statement did not provide the names or specify the number of attackers.

The commander of the US Forces and the NATO Resolute Support Mission in Afghanistan General John Nicholson says the HIMARS strike in southern Helmand province has left at least fifty Taliban leaders who had recently taken part in Farah city attack.

Police also said they had found a vehicle stuffed with explosives and guns at Kabul's Hamid Karzai International Airport near the interior ministry on Wednesday. In a later tweet, he said there were concerns that an attacker in a US military uniform was on the base and that head counts were underway.

Later Wednesday, the American commander of USA and coalition forces in Afghanistan cast doubt the attack was the work of IS, saying instead there are indications the Taliban-allied Haqqani network was behind it.
