Gunmen storm university campus in Kabul after blast rocks Afghan capital

An explosion and gunfire were reported at the Kabul University in Afghanistan on Monday morning, hours after a bomb went off in the city.

Police have surrounded the campus after a group of gunmen entered the university compound, Interior Ministry spokesperson, Tariq Arian, said. 

Sources told TOLOnews that there were three attackers. According to the report, an explosion and gunfire occurred when Afghan and Iranian officials were opening a book exhibition.

The outlet posted photos of students being evacuated from the campus.

A video from the scene shows people hastily walking down the street and fleeing in panic as loud bangs are being heard.

A Health Ministry spokesperson told 1TV that four people, including a lecturer at the university, were hospitalized.

No militant group, including the Taliban, has claimed the responsibility for the attack as of yet.

Earlier in the morning, a bomb exploded in Kabul, wounding a security serviceman and a civilian.

Last week, an SUV rigged with explosives blew up in a different part of the city, injuring three civilians.
