The insurgent group said the ongoing assault began with a suicide attack targeting local and foreign intelligence buildings at a roundabout in the city. Agence France Presse reporters heard a string of loud blasts while police confirmed one explosion and a gunfight close to the heavily-guarded embassy compound. An AFP reporter close to the scene saw a string of mortar rounds fired and small arms fire, and heard explosions that seemed to hit multiple targets.|
