Suicide attack outside Indian consulate in Jalalabad

Explosions and gunfire have been reported near the Indian consulate in the eastern Afghan city of Jalalabad. Government sources say the consulate was the target of the suicide attack.

All Indians are reported to be safe but 10 people have reportedly been injured. NDTV reported.

A grenade was reportedly lobbed inside the compound of the consulate. The Indo-Tibetan Border Police Force (ITBP) and Afghan security forces are engaged in a gunbattle with terrorists, news agency ANI said.

The blast shattered windows and doors in nearby buildings and destroyed at least eight cars, according to witnesses.

The strike follows a suicide attack on the nearby Pakistani consulate in Jalalabad in January.
