​​​​​​​Suicide bombing in Kabul: 4 dead after an explosion in Sikh temple, 200 besieged

Unidentified gunmen and suicide attackers attacked a crowded Sikh religious complex in the Afghan capital, in which 4 people were killed and 200 people had been trapped, security forces are trying to release them.

According to the British newspaper, the Mirror that four people were killed in a suicide bombing at a Sikh temple in the Afghan capital, Kabul.

Interior Ministry spokesman Tariq Erian said that the Afghan security forces closed the area and faced the attackers, adding, "It is not currently clear how many of the attackers were or who are they.

But Narinder Singh Khalsa, a member of Parliament representing the Sikh community, said he had reports of the deaths of four people and about 200 people trapped inside the temple in the early morning attack, "Three suicide bombers entered the Amsala house, full of Sikh worshipers, and Afghan forces clashed with the attackers," he said.

A spokesman for the Ministry of Interior said: The Afghan security forces have cleared one floor of the complex and are moving slowly to try to avoid civilian casualties.

The attack comes a day after the United States announced that it would reduce its aid to the Afghan government by one billion dollars, as the disputed political leaders did not reach an agreement, and the formation of a team to negotiate with the Taliban.

The United States last month signed a deal with the Taliban over the withdrawal of US-led international forces, without the deal including ISIS mercenaries.
