At least three people were killed and twelve other were wounded in a coordinated suicide car bombing in central Logar province of Afghanistan.

Provincial police spokesman Shapoor Ahmadzai confirmed that a group of suicide bombers launched a coordinated attack on Police District#1 police station earlier today.

Ahmadzai further added that the suicide bombers initially detonated a vehicle packed with explosives near the police station while three suicide bombers managed to enter the police station and started clashes with the security forces.

He said the suicide bombers were eliminated after a brief exchange of fire by the police forces but the blast left at least three policemen dead.

According to Ahmadzai, at least four policemen also sustained injuries after the car bomb was detonated.

At least eight civilians were also among those wounded, the provincial police spokesman Shapoor Ahmadzai added.

In the meantime, the Taliban group spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid claims that the attack was carried out on a unit of the Quick Reaction Forces.

Mujahid went on to claim that the attack has left several personnel of the Quick Reaction Forces dead along with their commanders but the local officials reject the Taliban claims.
