Gunmen attack Save the Children office in Afghanistan:Two killed

KABUL (AFP) – Gunmen blasted their way into Save the Children’s office in Afghanistan’s restive east on Wednesday, witnesses and officials said, killing at least two persons and wounding 14 others in the latest attack on a foreign aid group in the war-torn country.

After blowing up a car outside the British charity’s compound in Jalalabad city, the attackers used a rocket-propelled grenade to storm the complex.

Security forces swarmed the compound after the attackers launched the morning raid and brought the assault to an end after more than three hours, Nangarhar governor spokesman Attaullah Khogyani told AFP.

“The fighting has ended. The security forces are clearing the building now. Our initial information shows so far, one dead and 14 wounded have been brought to hospitals,” Khogyani said.
