A powerful explosion was heard across the city as a car bomb was detonated near a police headquarters in the west of the city, the interior ministry said. The blast was followed immediately by gunfire between security forces and an unknown number of attackers.

Najib Danesh, a spokesman for the interior ministry, said 15 people, including 11 civilians, were killed in the attack and in a separate one minutes later when a suicide bomber detonated his explosives at an office of Afghanistan’s main intelligence agency, the National Directorate for Security (NDS).

Another 50 people, including women and children, were wounded in the two attacks.

A senior army official said the attack on the NDS office was over more quickly.

“Two terrorists entered a building. One blew himself up and the second was shot by Afghan security forces,” said Abdul Nasir Ziaee, commander of 111th corps based in the east of the city.
