"At around 4:40 pm (1210 GMT), first a blast occurred near Green Trend office... then a number of attackers entered that office," interior ministry spokesman Nasrat Rahimi said.
Saleh belongs to Afghanistan's Green Trend party and has previously served as the head of the country's intelligence agency.
