KABUL: Sixteen people were killed Wednesday in simultaneous Taliban suicide assaults on two security compounds in Kabul, as the insurgents ramp up attacks even before the start of their annual spring offensive.
Dozens of others were wounded as explosions and gunfire echoed through the capital city, in a day of carnage that underscores rising insecurity in Afghanistan over the resurgent Taliban.
A statement by Taliban spokesman, Zabiullah Mujahid, said the group carried out both attacks. The Afghan Health Ministry said at least 16 people were killed and more than 40 wounded in the twin assaults.
Kabul and other parts of Afghanistan have been hit by a spate of violence in recent months, although Taliban attacks usually subside in winter. Last month, 22 people, including women and children, were killed outside the Supreme Court in Kabul by a suicide blast. The Islamic State claimed responsibility for that attack.
