CBS News' Ahmad Muktar reported that several American professors and possibly hundreds of students are inside, though many have appeared to escape through emergency doors. Pulitzer Prize-winning Associated Press photographer Massoud Hossaini tweeted that he and others are trapped inside the school. Hossaini tweeted that he heard shooting and an explosion. The American University of Afghanistan is Afghanistan's first private, not-for-profit institution of higher education, and as of 2012 had an enrollment of roughly 1,300.
