Islamic State claims assault on Afghan interior ministry - statement

CAIRO (Reuters) - Islamic State said it was behind Wednesday’s attack on Afghanistan’s Interior Ministry in Kabul, but provided no immediate evidence for its claim.

The group released a statement online via its Amaq news agency.

Attackers armed with assault rifles and grenade launchers stormed the heavily fortified Interior Ministry headquarters earlier on Wednesday.
