Indian consulate in afghanistan attacked by militants; no casualties reported

Published: 05.23.14, 07:45 / Israel News

KABUL - Gunmen armed with machine guns and rocket-propelled grenades attacked the Indian Consulate in western Afghanistan's Herat province Friday, an assault that injured no diplomatic staff, police said. Indian diplomats said there had been a threat against its diplomats in Afghanistan, but gave no other details.

 

The three gunmen opened fire on the consulate from a nearby home, provincial police chief Abdul Sami Qatra said. Police killed two of the three gunmen, though one continued to fire on security forces trying to secure the area, Qatra said.

 

No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack. (Associated Press)
