Iraq's embassy in Kabul attacked by ISIS

Gunfire and explosions could be heard
The Islamic State terror group took responsibility for an attack Monday on Iraq's embassy in the Afghan capital of Kabul.

Three attackers entered the compound after a fourth blew himself up in a car bombing at an embassy gate in the late morning Monday.

Gunfire and explosions could be heard within the area as embassy staff members were evacuated, Najib Danish, a spokesman for Afghanistan's interior ministry, said.

"It is a terrorist attack. There is no threat to the ambassador and the employees of the embassy. They were taken to a safe place," Danish said in a statement.

No injuries were reported. Plumes of smoke from the embassy grounds were visible, and a police officer near the scene said five explosions were followed by gunfire.
