Reportedly, three Host Country Nationals (HCN) were killed in the incident, which is likely to be cordoned off in the affected area, causing traffic delays. A secondary attack is possible and it is advised that all nonessential personnel avoid the area.
Further localized disruptions are likely in the immediate term.
