He said one police officer and a police soldier were killed and two others wounded in the attack.

Meanwhile, Kabul Police Chief Daud Amin said on Thursday that “first a suicide bomber detonated his explosives close to the gate of PD13 and the second bomber entered inside the compound and he was killed by police after 20 minutes of clashes".

“The attackers had security forces uniform and were equipped with RPG, hand grenade and guns,” he said. 

The second explosion occurred when a suicide bomber was recognized and stopped by police force members in Mahtab Qala area in Dasht-e-Barchi, he added.

Amin said five suicide bombers attacked PD10 Police Headquarters in Shar-e-Naw area in Kabul City.

The attack occurred at around 12:30pm when a suicide bomber blew up his explosives near the police headquarters and four others entered into building of a private travel agency in the area and started their attacks from the roof the building, the police chief said.
