As many as 34 more were wounded in an attack on the governor of Parwan’s compound in what witnesses said was a highly-organised assault.

The attack began with a car bomb at the front gate which blew a hole in the wall and allowed five suicide bombers, some wearing police uniform, into the compound in the market town of Charikar.
