Afghan Suicide Bombing

At least twenty people were killed in Afghanistan on Friday when a suicide bomber forced his way into a classroom at Kaaj Higher Educational Centre in Kabul.

Naija News reports that nearly every Friday explosions occur at targeted places of worship and other institutions in Afghanistan.

The scary development according to reports is been carried out by the radical Islamic State group despite the Taliban takeover of the country some months ago.

Reports revealed that the detonated bomb today wounded about 30 people in the school located in the Dasht-e-Barchi area where the students were said to be sitting for a practice for university examination.

No terrorist group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack.

It was, however, reported that many of the areas are minority Hazaras, who have been targeted by Islamic State (IS) militants and the Taliban.

“Students were preparing for an exam when a suicide bomber struck at this educational centre. Unfortunately, 19 people have been martyred and 27 others wounded,” Kabul police spokesman, Khalid Zadran told reporters.

A student of the school, Akbar said most of the victims were girls. “We were around 600 in the classroom. But most of the casualties are among the girls,” she lamented.
