German consulate in Afghanistan bombed in ‘revenge’ attack by Taliban

At least two people have died in a suicide attack on the German consulate in a city in north Afghanistan.

A car packed with explosives was rammed into the high outer wall surrounding the consulate in Mazar-i-Sharif.

Authorities were investigating if a second car was involved, said a local Nato spokesperson.

The Taliban called it a “revenge attack” for US airstrikes in the volatile province of Kunduz earlier this month that left up to 32 civilians dead.

“The suicide attacker rammed his explosives-laden car into the wall of German consulate in the city,” local police chief Sayed Kamal Sadat told AFP.

A huge explosion, followed by sporadic gunfire, reverberated across the usually tranquil city, smashing windows of nearby shops and leaving terrified local residents fleeing for cover.

At least two dead bodies and more than 100 wounded people – including at least 10 children – had so far been brought to two city hospitals, said local doctor Noor Mohammad Fayez.

Some of the wounded are in a critical condition, he added.
