According to officials, a suicide bombing at an educational facility in Kabul, the capital city of Afghanistan, resulted in the deaths of 19 persons and the injuries of 29 others.
The blast occurred in the 13th security area of Kabul, Taliban spokesperson Abdul Nafee Takour was quoted as saying by TOLO news.
Abdul Nafi Takor, a Taliban-appointed spokesman for the Interior Ministry, said the blast was in the early morning but was unable to provide more details.
“Our teams have dispatched at the site of the blast to find out more details,” Takor said.
No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, the latest in a steady stream of violence since the Taliban seized power in Afghanistan just over a year ago.
The Islamic State group – a top rival of the Taliban – has previously targeted mosques and worshippers, especially members of Afghanistan’s Shiite community in attacks.
