A group of militants have attacked an army post near one of Afghanistan’s military academies in Kabul in the latest violence to strike the capital.

Five militants armed with rocket-propelled grenades and automatic rifles attacked the outpost near the well-defended Marshal Fahim military academy at about 5 am (00.30 GMT) this morning.

Eleven soldiers were killed and 16 wounded, a defence ministry spokesman said. Two of the attackers blew themselves up, two were killed in fighting and one was captured.

“The Afghan national army is the country’s defence force and makes sacrifices for the security and well-being of the people,” the ministry said.

Islamic State, which is believed to operate in the mountains of the eastern province of Nangarhar, claimed responsibility for the attack, according to the militant group’s Amaq news agency.
