Gunmen have stormed a judicial office in the northern Afghan city of Mazar-e Sharif.
Police sources and witnesses told RFE/RL’s Radio Free Afghanistan that three armed men entered a provincial prosecutorial office in Mazar-e Sharif on April 9 and exchanged fire with security forces.
They said two policemen were killed and about 10 prosecutors taken hostage.
Medical sources said at least seven wounded people, including a child, were brought to hospital.
Media said the attackers wore military uniforms.
The attack came a day after an Afghan soldier fatally shot a U.S. soldier and wounded several others in the eastern city of Jalalabad.
U.S. Defense Secretary Ashton Carter said that attack was "a reminder Afghanistan is still a dangerous place" and that there is "still work to be done to support the Afghan security forces" following the withdrawal of most NATO coalition troops last year.
