Armed men have attacked the American University in the Afghan capital Kabul, officials have confirmed. Eyewitnesses on social media say they are trapped inside, as government forces head to the scene.

Local network TOLOnews reported there was an initial explosion before the gunmen infiltrated the campus, located in a relatively secure and upmarket part of Kabul.

“Help we are stuck inside,” tweeted Massoud Hossaini, an AP photographer who says he is a student. “These may be my last tweets.”

We’re dealing with a complex attack inside the American University. Special forces are en route,” a representative of Kabul’s rapid reaction force told local journalist Bilal Sarwary.
