Kabul: Taliban militants stormed a court complex in the Afghan city of Ghazni on Wednesday, clashing with police in which 10 people, including all five of the militants, were killed, police said.

Twelve others, including a woman, were also wounded in the attack, TOLONews reported.

The attack took place in Ghazni city after the suicide bombers attacked the court. A gunfight ensued, which resulted in the death of all attackers, the provincial police chief, Aminullah Amarkhil said.

"The first attacker wanted to detonate a car bomb near the Appeal Court to open a way for other attackers (but was stopped by security). Security forces defused the bomb. All other attackers were killed when they attacked security forces," Amarkhil said.

"The head of the Appeal Court was also slightly injured in the attack," he added.

The attack came days after the Taliban, who are fighting to topple the government of President Ashraf Ghani, vowed to seek revenge for the death in a US drone attack of their chief Mullah Akhtar Mansoor.
