Taliban claim responsibility for attack on security firm’s compound in which five Afghan nationals also died
The British employee of G4S who was killed in a Taliban bomb and gun attack on the company’s compound in Kabul has been named as Luke Griffin. The security firm said the 33-year-old lived in the Merseyside area and had worked for the firm for eight years.
Five Afghan nationals also died in the attack, including four who also worked for G4S. The attack started when a suicide bomber rammed his explosive-packed lorry into the gate of the G4S compound in eastern Kabul on Wednesday evening, and was followed by an hours-long gun battle with militants armed with grenades and automatic rifles who stormed the compound building.
