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.

Britain's May faces calls to relax Northern Ireland abortion rules

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.

Attacks in recent months claimed by either Taliban or Islamic State fighters have killed scores in Kabul and elsewhere, demonstrating the Taliban's capability to carry out strikes even in the heart of the country's capital.

"Eight civilians have also been wounded", provincial police spokesman Shapoor Ahmadzai told AFP. The Taliban have threatened to attack voter registration centres.

After pushing out fighters in Farah, Afghan and United States forces continued to pursue them, Nicholson told reporters at the Pentagon via video link. He said the victims included mechanics who had been contracted to fix Afghan army vehicles.
