Official: 17 killed, 46 wounded in Kabul attacks
A spokesman for the Defense Ministry says 17 people were killed and 46 wounded in multiple attacks on government building attacks in Kabul.
Gen. Mohammad Zahir Azimi says that eight attackers also died in the attacks outside the Justice Ministry and other government buildings Wednesday. He says all attackers had suicide vests, but only three assailants set them off.
The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attacks.
