Multiple outlets reported gunfire and explosions at Afghanistan’s American University in Kabul on Wednesday evening.
Teachers and students are taking cover in place, and there are no definitive reports of injuries or deaths at this point, Fox News reports.
Two of the university’s teachers were kidnapped at gunpoint earlier this month.
American University is Afghanistan’s first private, not-for-profit institution of higher education, according to their Facebook page.
The following image circulating on social media claims to be photo of the explosion, though Business Insider has been unable to confirm:
