Kabul – The Taliban Deputy Interior Ministry spokesman Aqiljan Azzam says that a suicide attack on the General Directorate of Passports has been prevented.
Hours ago, eyewitnesses reported an explosion at the entrance gate of the General Directorate of Passports.
“The suicide bomber, who was trying to enter the passport department, was identified by the Taliban forces and killed,” said Saeed Khosti, the Interior Ministry spokesman to the media.
However, the exact details of the incident and the number of casualties are not yet clear, and no group has claimed the responsibility for the attack.
Earlier, the Taliban had announced that on Thursdays, the process of distributing passports will be only for them and their families.
