KABUL: A suicide attacker blew himself up near the Kabul police academy on Friday, officials said, with heavy casualties expected in the second major attack in the Afghan capital in less than 24 hours.
The incident, which comes as cadets were returning to the academy after their two-day weekend, marks a serious breach of security at a premier training institute for Afghan security forces.
“A suicide bomber on foot blew himself up near the academy,” said deputy interior ministry spokesman Najib Danish. “Heavy casualties are expected.”
