Local Khaama Press quoted Provincial police spokesman Shapoor Ahmadzai as having confirmed that a group of suicide bombers launched a coordinated attack on Police District#1 police station earlier on Wednesday.



Ahmadzai further added that the suicide bombers initially detonated a vehicle packed with explosives near the police station while three suicide bombers managed to enter the police station and started clashes with the security forces.

According to Ahmadzai, at least four policemen also sustained injuries after the car bomb was detonated.



At least eight civilians were also among those wounded, the provincial police spokesman Shapoor Ahmadzai added.



In the meantime, the Taliban group spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid claims that the attack was carried out on a unit of the Quick Reaction Forces.
