Car bomb attack on Afghan intelligence agency installation, kills five

Just a day after President Ashraf Ghani and his rival Abdullah Abdullah signed a power-sharing agreement in Kabul, ending the months-long political deadlock in the country, a car bomb attack targeting an Afghan intelligence agency installation has killed at least five people on May 18.

The official said that the attack took place in the eastern province of Ghazni.

Wahidullah Jumazada, Spokesman to the Governor, said, “The terrorists have used a humvee in their attack. They have targeted the National Directorate of Security unit in Ghazni city”.

Wahidullah Jumazada added that five people were killed and 32 others were wounded in the deadly attack. Wahidullah Jumazada confirmed, “Most of the victims are intelligence personnel”.

By far, no group has claimed responsibility for the early morning attack. The attack has been condemned by the Interior Ministry in Kabul and a Health Official in Ghazni.
