It happened when a car bomber rammed the compound in the city of Mazar-i-Sharif. The car exploded at the gate of the consulate. Many houses and shops were also destroyed or damaged. The explosion was reportedly followed by fighting outside the building and on the grounds of the consulate. All Germans at the consulate were rescued. The Taliban have claimed responsibility for the attack. The militant group has recently stepped up attacks across Afghanistan. Kunduz, which borders Mazar-i-Sharif, was briefly seized by the Taliban last month.
