Suicide Blast Killed 19, Wounded 27 In Afghan Capital
KABUL, Oct 1 (NNN-ANA) – At least 19 people were killed and 27 others wounded yesterday, in a suicide explosion that rocked an education centre, in a neighbourhood of western Kabul, capital of Afghanistan.
“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, said.
In a following statement, for prevention of future tragedies, Zadran urged all educational centres in western Kabul, to inform the local police department about their future plans on hosting events with large gatherings.
“We wish safety will come soon and people will find their jobs. We have experienced enough bloodshed and war. How long will our people continue suffering bloodshed and misery?” Ahmed Javed, an eyewitness asked.
Zabihullah Mujahid, chief spokesman of the Taliban-run administration, condemned the attack, terming it as “a barbaric act.”
No group or individual has claimed responsibility for the attack yet.
Western Kabul has been the scene of bomb explosions, which targeted public places and vehicles in recent years. The Daesh terrorist group has claimed responsibility for the majority of the attacks.
A similar blast claimed seven lives and injured 41 others in Kabul a week ago.
