Kunduz | Aug 2

DPA – Three suicide bombers stormed the office of a private security company in northern Afghanistan Tuesday, killing four guards and injuring 10 civilians, police said.

The attackers stormed the building rented by the private security company Kaboora in Kunduz city early in the morning, provincial deputy police chief Abdul Rahman Aqtash said.

The company was responsible for providing security for the German aid organization GIZ in Kunduz, he said. The office of GIZ is located some 100 metres away.

The first bomber detonated explosives in a car next to the office and allowed the two other attackers to get inside, he said.

Four guards were killed and 10 people including another guard were injured in the explosion and gunfire that lasted for an hour, he said.
