Helicopters watched over the Iraqi Embassy in Kabul on Monday as Afghan security forces continued to fill the streets, following an attack at the facility that left four dead.
A suicide bomber detonated his device outside of the embassy gates before three attackers made their way into the building. The insurgents were then killed in an intense shoot out with security forces.
The self... Еще-proclaimed Islamic State (IS; formerly ISIS/ISIL) claimed responsibility for the attack via their Amaq news agency.
There have been conflicting reports on the number of casualties following the attack.
The Iraqi Embassy is located in Shar-e-Naw district, outside the heavily secured 'green zone' of the city where most foreign embassies are located.
