    New Delhi (Sputnik): Preliminary reports suggest that two suicide bombers entered the Sikh temple in Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan, and started to fire indiscriminately. Eyewitness also confirmed a massive explosion inside the house of worship.

    Narender Singh Khalsa, a member of the Afghan parliament, says that three to four people had been killed in the clash, while nearly 150 people are trapped inside the Dharamshala, a Sikh area of worship, in the Shorbazar neighbourhood of Kabul, where suicide bombers entered on Wednesday morning.

    Afghan security forces have reached the site and a gunfight is underway, said Tariq Arian, a spokesman for the Ministry of Interior. Tolo News reported that the incident began at around 7:45 a.m. local time.
