ABU DHABI, December 25. /ITAR-TASS/. Two powerful explosions occurred this morning near U.S. Embassy in the Afghan capital. Three police officers were seriously injured. As reported by the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the attack was aimed against national security forces staff.
“We have received the alert that a terrorist attack is being prepared in the Zaman Khan Kalay area,” head of the capitals’ police Gen.
