An Afghan official says two civilians have been killed in an attempted car bomb attack on the Indian consulate in the eastern city of Jalalabad.
Attaullah Khogyani, the Nangarhar provincial governor's spokesman, said on Wednesday another 19 civilians were wounded in the suicide bombing. He says all 5 attackers were killed.
An official at the Indian embassy in Kabul, Anil Kumar, says all consulate staff are safe.
He says no one breached the consulate building. No group has claimed responsibility.
The attack follows a similar incident outside the nearby Pakistani consulate in January, which killed one person.
Meanwhile, a district governor says that four policemen were killed in an insurgent attack on their checkpoint.
Aminullah Khalq, governor of Dihrawud district, says the attack Monday wounded two policemen.
