Gunman kills at least 10 students in an attack on Kabul University

Armed groups attacked the Kabul University campus on Monday, killing at least 10 students and setting fire with security forces, according to senior Afghan government sources and witnesses.
According to one witness, the attackers targeted students and fired at them when they fled to the capital of Afghanistan.
“They were shooting every student they saw,” Fatura Moradi told Reuters. He said he was able to escape through one of the college gates with a group of friends.
The Taliban said their fighters were not involved in the assault. Other groups did not immediately claim responsibility.
Witnesses said the attack followed an explosion in the area.
“At least 10 people killed many others who were injured,” he told Reuters on condition of anonymity because he was not allowed to speak to the media.
According to Home Office spokesman Tariq Arian, several attackers entered the campus and were fighting security forces.
At least 15 people were injured, police sources said.
Afghanistan’s NATO senior private sector representative Stefano Pontecorvo has accused the attack.
“This is the second attack on Kabul’s educational institutions in 10 days. Children and adolescents in Afghanistan need to go to school safely,” he said in a statement.
At the end of last month, an attack on an education center in Kabul killed 24 people, most of them students.
Violence has plagued Afghanistan while government and Taliban negotiators are meeting in Qatar to mediate a peace agreement, and while the United States is returning its troops.
