Kabul Suicide attack: Twin blasts have been reported near the Defence Ministry compound in Kabul, Tolo News has reported.

KABUL: Two explosions hit the Afghan capital, Kabul, near the defence ministry on Monday, and casualties were feared, an army official said.

There was no immediate confirmation of the cause of the blasts, less than two weeks after 13 people were killed in a suicide attack on the American University in Kabul.

Despite the authorities implementing security measures, militants in Afghanistan are still able to get away with such huge and complex attacks.
