Developing: Attack on Dharamshala Ends After Six Hours of Clash

Afghan Special Forces confirmed that all four suicide bombers who attacked Dharamshala, a Sikh worship area in PD1 of Kabul, were killed after nearly six hours of fighting.

The Sikh religious temple was attacked in the capital of Kabul early on Wednesday.

Narindra Singh Khalsa, a Sikh lawmaker, told news outlets that four people had been killed and the trapped people inside have been rescued.

The Islamic State group has reportedly claimed responsibility for the attack.

Afghanistan’s minority Sikh community has been targeted numerous times by Islamic extremists in recent years.

A suicide bomber killed more than a dozen people in the eastern city of Jalalabad in 2018 in an attack claimed by Islamic State.
