KABUL (Pajhwok): Two civilians were killed and another three wounded after two suicide bombers stormed a restaurant in central capital Kabul on Thursday night, the spy service said.
The National Directorate of Security (NDS) said the attack in the limits of the third police district involved two suicide bombers laced with light and heavy weapons and hand-grenades.
Soon after entering the restaurant, the two opened indiscriminate firing at dining guests, injuring five people, the NDS said in a statement.
