Security forces had cordoned off the area, located in old Kabul, and are trying to counter the attack, which began at 7:45 am local time, Ministry of Interior spokesman Tariq Arian said in a message to journalists. “People are stuck inside the building and (security forces) are trying to rescue them,” Arian told AFP news agency.
