Breaking News about Terrorism : Explosions, gunshots at Indian consulate in Afghan city Mazar

Explosions, gunshots at Indian consulate in Afghan city Mazar

Explosions and gunshots were heard near the Indian consulate in the northern Afghan city of Mazar-i-Sharif on Sunday and an unknown number of gunmen attempted to enter the compound, a spokesman for the local governor said. 


No details were immediately available on any casualties or damage or on the number of attackers and there was no immediate claim of responsibility.

Muneer Ahmad Farhad, a spokesman for the Balkh province governor, said insurgents had hidden in a house near the consulate and struck after darkness fell. He said attackers had tried to enter the consulate but had so far not been able to.

"Right now our security forces are fighting them," he said.

The Indian consulate in the northern Afghan city of Mazar-i-Sharif has come under attack.
The spokesman for the local governor told Reuters news agency that armed men tried to enter the consulate compound on Sunday night.
Explosions and gunfire could be heard from the vicinity of the compound as a group of gunmen were said to have taken position inside a building and opened fire on the consulate.
All Indian consular staff were safe, the Indian consul-general confirmed. 
Al Jazeera's Qais Azimy, reporting from Kabul, said some casualties had been reported but initial details were scarce.
"It's not the first time an Indian diplomatic post has been attacked in Afghanistan. A couple of years ago, the Indian embassy in Kabul was attacked," he said.
Sunday's attack came as Indian security forces were still trying to suppress an assault on an air base near the border with Pakistan that has killed at least seven military personnel and wounded 20 others.
