“Help we are stuck inside,” tweeted Massoud Hossaini, an AP photographer. “These may be my last tweets.”
Twitter eyewitnesses said that some students were able to make it out in time, as soon as they heard the blast, while others were locked down in their classrooms and offices.
Photographs and video showed massed police forces stationed outside the gates.
Afghanistan’s 1TV news reported that there were “multiple” dead and wounded on campus. The channel also cited eyewitness reports claiming that some of the attackers may have entered Noor Hospital, located next door to the educational facility.
The American University of Afghanistan was established in 2006 with the help of US funds and remains the country’s leading private university. All classes are taught in English, and there are currently over 2,000 students enrolled.
Earlier this month, two professors, an American and an Australian citizen, were kidnapped from its campus.

A slide used during an Army training presentation lists Hillary Clinton as an “insider threat” alongside whistleblowers and mass shooters.
The image is a training slide regarding insider threats and the handling of classified information and featured photos of General David Petraeus, Chelsea Manning, Edward Snowden, Navy Yard shooter Aaron Alexis, and Fort Hood Shooter Nidal Malik.
The slide is titled, “Who is the threat? Insiders,” and listed Hasan, Manning, Snowden, and Alexis together under a bullet point. The next bullet point was titled, “Careless or disgruntled employees” and featured Petraeus and Clinton.
It was posted to a Facebook page called “U.S. Army W.T.F! Moments,” on Sunday, and the Army verified its authenticity to the Washington Examiner. They noted that the slide was developed 18 months ago and was used to teach best practices for maintaining operational security, but stated that it is no longer in use.
Clinton’s judgement and character has long been in question since it was revealed that she was using an unsecure private server for classified communications during her tenure at the State Department — putting national security at risk and avoiding open records laws.
On Monday, it was revealed that the FBI has found an additional 14,900 email messages that Clinton never turned over to the government. She had previously claimed that she had turned over all of her work related electronic communications.
As the scandals continue to add up, whether this slide was a joke or not, it doesn’t appear that everyone in the Army is prepared to trust or respect Clinton if she becomes their new Commander in Chief, rightfully.
