Police arrest five linked with Kabul rocket attack

The Ministry of Interior (MoI) said that five people have been arrested in connection with Monday night’s rocket attack in Kabul.

The ministry said one rocket landed in a U.S base, Camp Eggers, close to the US Embassy – another near Amani High School and the third one inside the Ministry of Mines and Petroleum compound, Tolo News reported.

However no casualties were reported.

“Fortunately, the [rocket] attacks left no casualties,” said MoI spokesman Sediq Sediqqi.

A number of senators meanwhile called on government to take measures to avoid a repeat of such an attack.

“We urge the security forces to seriously investigate the incident and find out where it originated from,” said Senator Anarkali Honaryar.
