Simultaneous Attacks Kill 16 In Afghanistan

At least 16 people have been killed, and a further 44 injured, following almost simultaneous attacks in the Afghan capital, Kabul.

Almost simultaneous attacks in Kabul have left at least 16 people dead and 44 injured, the health ministry says.

The two suicide attacks took place at about midday local time (07:30 GMT) on Wednesday, targeting a police station and intelligence agency offices.

Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid claimed responsibility for the attacks.

It is the latest in a string of attacks to challenge the Afghan authorities after the resurgent militant group started its spring offensive early.
