(FOX NEWS) Armed militants in Afghanistan stormed a key government security agency in the capital Tuesday morning as part of a coordinated assault, killing at least 28 people and wounding more than 320.
The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack, which included a suicide car bombing. It appeared to have targeted an agency similar to the U.S. Secret Service, providing personal protection for high-ranking government officials.
Sediq Sediqqi, spokesman for the Interior Ministry, said during a press conference that two militants were involved in the attack. One drove the small truck rigged with hundreds of pounds of explosives. The second entered the compound in the aftermath of the explosion and opened fire before he was eventually killed.
