Khost; At least three people were killed as an attack took place on a police special unit center in eastern Khost province of Afghanistan on Tuesday, media reports said.

The attack left 33 people injured.

The incident occurred around 6am local time after a car bomb was detonated close to the wall of the police special forces center, Taleb Mangal, a spokesman for the provincial governor, told Tolo News.

Daoud Tarakhel, provincial police chief, confirmed that a group of attackers entered the center and are clashing with security forces.     

“The security forces destroyed another car bomb before it reached its target,” Tarakhel told Tolo News, adding that “several security forces have been wounded in the attack.”   

Attackers have been confined to one building, and other parts of the police special unit area have been cleared of insurgents, he added. 

No group has claimed responsibility for the incident so far.
