At least seven large explosions and automatic gunfire rocked the central diplomatic area of Kabul and embassy alarms were sounding. Gunfire appeared to be coming from various directions in the heavily barricaded diplomatic area of central Kabul close to both the U.S. and British embassies.
Neither embassy were immediately available to comment.
Multiple blasts and gunfire have been heard in the center of the Afghan capital Kabul. The central district is home to a number of international embassies, although the site of the violence is unclear. Residents were reportedly running for cover and sirens wailing in the Wazir Akbar Khan district.
