Kabul attack: 20 killed, 50 injured in bombing and gun battle

The death toll from a suicide attack on the Kabul office of Amrullah Saleh, Afghan President Ashraf Ghani's running mate in the September elections, reached 20 with at least 50 wounded, officials said on Monday as emergency services attended the scene.

Saleh, a former intelligence chief and security adviser who is running for vice president with Ghani, was slightly wounded in Sunday's attack on the office of his Green Trends party in central Kabul. No group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack, which came at the start of official campaigning for the presidential election scheduled for Sept. 28. The election has been delayed twice this year.
