KABUL, March 25 (Xinhua) -- Attack on a sub-office of Afghan election commission in the capital Kabul on Tuesday left 10 people including five attackers dead and three others injured, Interior Ministry spokesman Sediq Sediqi said.

"All five attackers have been killed by police," Sediqi told reporters.

He admitted that five people including two policemen lost their lives in the counter-attack.

Sediqi also stated that all those held inside the election compound have been rescued by police.

A group of militants equipped with suicide bomb vests and firearms raided the election office in Darul Aman area at 11:30 a. m. local time triggering gun battle which ended at around 04:00 p. m.

Taliban outfit claimed responsibility for the attack insisting 20 election workers were killed in the attack, a claim rejected by police as baseless.
