Four people, including two attackers, have been killed and six others injured as militants' attack on the state-owned national TV building continued in Jalalabad city, 120 km east of Kabul, on Wednesday.

"Four people including two attackers have been confirmed dead and six others injured," spokesman for provincial governor Attaullah Khogiani told Xinhua.

A group of suicide bombers targeted government offices, including governor house, a police station and the national TV station in Jalalabad city on Wednesday morning, triggering gun battles between security forces and the insurgents.

No militant group has claimed responsibility for the coordinated attacks.

Police have cordoned off the area and do not allow journalists to get access to the site of the incident.
