At least 28 people were killed and more than 300 wounded Tuesday in a coordinated attack by the Taliban that included a suicide bombing in the Afghan capital of Kabul, Afghan officials said.

The suicide bomber detonated a vehicle laden with explosives before gunmen entered the compound of a government secret service unit whose role was to protect VIPs, local broadcaster TOLOnews reported.

It said a two-hour gun battle between security forces and insurgents ensued. President Ashraf Ghani condemned the attack, which started at about 9 a.m. local time.
