KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — An Afghan official says an attack is underway in the country's capital where gunmen have raided and occupied a partially constructed building near an intelligence training center in western Kabul.

Nasrat Rahimi, deputy spokesman for the Interior Ministry, says the attackers are battling Afghan security forces and that reinforcements have been dispatched to the area on Monday.

Rahimi had no word on casualties but confirmed gunshots and explosion in the area.

Earlier, an Afghan official said a Taliban attack on Sunday killed a police officer and wounded three others in western Badghis province.

Gulam Haydar Sarwari, the province's deputy police chief, says that in the attack, the insurgents targeted a police security post in the remote district of Ab Kamari. He says the slain officer was the district police commander.
