Islamic State claims responsibility of suicide bomb in Kabul Afghan capital

Islamic State said one of its militants was responsible for a deadly suicide bombing in a Shi’ite area of the Afghan capital Kabul on Wednesday, the group’s Amaq news agency said on Thursday without providing proof.

Amaq said the attacker was wearing a suicide vest.

Afghan authorities said on Thursday that the death toll from the attack, which hit an educational centre west of Kabul, was 34 and 56 were injured.

Authorities said most of the victims of the Wednesday attack were students preparing for university entrance exams in a classroom at the Mawoud Academy in an area of west Kabul where many members of the city’s mainly Shi’ite Hazara community live.

Investigators said the bomber entered the centre from a rear entrance and made his way into a classroom where more than 100 students had gathered.

Their funerals were due to take place on Thursday.
