There’s been an explosion followed by the sound of gunfire in Kabul, NPR’s Sean Carberry and other journalists report from the Afghan capital.

Reuters reports that the explosion occurred “at about 4 p.m. local time in a downtown district. … There was no word on any casualties.” The BBC says gunfire can be heard near the headquarters of the Afghan intelligence service.

Sean tweeted just after 8:25 a.m. ET (4:55 p.m. in Kabul) that there’s “ongoing gunfire near scene of blast in Kabul. Police keeping a perimeter of a couple blocks.”

We’ll monitor the news from Kabul and update as the story develops. [Copyright 2013 NPR]
