December 12, Afghan security forces were able to eliminate three terrorists, who took positions in the hotel close to the Spanish Embassy in Kabul a day earlier, said local sources.
Terrorists detonated a car bomb, after which three militants were able to reside in a hotel and open fire on the security forces.
Due to the proximity of the Spanish Embassy to the place of attack was initially assumed that the militants attacked the diplomatic mission, but then the Prime Minister of Spain Mariano Rajoy said that the attack was carried out on the adjacent building.
The explosion killed the employee of security service of the Spanish Embassy and the Spanish national were wounded. Were also injured nine Afghan citizens.
The police chief of Kabul, Abdul Rahman Rahimi said that the Afghan security forces lost five men killed and wounded, without further details.
Responsibility for the attack was taken by the grouping of the Taliban.
