Kandahar Governor’s Office Under Attack

KABUL: Militants Wednesday launched a massive offensive against the police headquarters and the provincial governor’s office in Kandahar, the capital of Afghanistan’s Kandahar province, 450 km south of Kabul.

“A group of militants first carried out a suicide car bomb attack next to the Kandahar police headquarters and minutes later some militants opened fire on the governor’s office,” Dawa Khan Minapal, spokesman for the provincial government, told.

The gun battle between the security forces and the attackers was going on, Minapal said, adding that the militants have occupied some buildings near the governor’s office and police headquarters.
