The Taliban group claimed responsibility for a massive Vehicle-borne Improvised Explosive Device (VBIED) explosion in Kabul city earlier tonight.
Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid said in a statement that one of the suicide bombers of the group detonated the VBIED close to Green Village.
Mujahid went on to claim that many other assailants stormed into the compound following the explosion.
However, the interior ministry spokesman Nasrat Rahimi said the militants detonated the VBIED among the civilian houses.
Rahimi also rejected the Taliban claims that the fighters of the group have intruded into Green Village compound.
