The Afghan Interior Ministry says armed militants have stormed a partially constructed building near an intelligence training center in Kabul, triggering intense fighting with security forces. Mujahid said that the extremists arrived in a vehicle loaded with explosives, which they then detonated in a controlled manner.

There were no reports of casualties yet among security forces or civilians.

ISIL claimed two of its fighters were involved, but reports said at least five fighters launched an attack at around 10am local time.

There was no immediate information on casualties.

The Afghan capital in recent months has become one of the deadliest places in the war-torn country for civilians, as the resurgent Taliban and increasingly I.S. both step up their attacks on security installations and mosques.
