We are just learning that American University of Afghanistan in Kabul is under attack from terrorists.
This attack comes just weeks after two professors were kidnapped from the university.
From CBS News:
Witnesses say they heard gunshots, then a blast, and many believe it was the gate blown open, letting the attackers inside.
Pulitzer Prize-winning Associated Press photographer Massoud Hossaini has been tweeting that he is trapped inside along with others.
