Militants have attacked an army base near a military academy in the Afghan capital, Kabul, killing at least 11 soldiers.
Sixteen other Afghan soldiers were injured, a defence ministry spokesman told the BBC.
Five militants were involved, said the spokesman. Four were killed in the attack but one was arrested.
The attack has been claimed by the Islamic State (IS), according to the militant group’s Amaq news agency.
Earlier reports said the attack had taken place at Marshal Fahim National Defense University, which is near the military base.
It comes days after the deadliest bombing for months hit Kabul when Taliban militants in an ambulance packed with explosives killed at least 100 people.
How did Monday’s attack unfold?
Several explosions were heard, as well as small-arms fire, as the attack began at about 05:00 local time (00:30 GMT) at the military base in western Kabul.
Two attackers blew themselves up, two others were killed by security forces and a fifth was arrested, defence ministry spokesman Gen Dawlat Waiziri told the BBC.
Four AK-47 assault rifles, one suicide vest and one rocket-launcher were seized, he said.
The president’s spokesperson said none of the attackers had been able to get further than the first gate, Afghan news website Tolo reports.
Afghan military institutions are frequently targeted by militants.
