KABUL (Reuters) - Taliban suicide bombers attacked a court in Wardak province on Tuesday, killing two police officers before being shot dead as they entered the compound, the police chief said.

The police officers were killed when one of the bombers detonated his vest at the first entrance. Wardak province is about an hour's drive west of the capital.

"Two bombers managed to enter the compound, but our security forces were prepared and shot them dead before they reached the second entrance,” Wardak police chief Khalil Andarabi said.
