Islamabad deplores terrorist attack in Afghanistan

Islamabad deplores terrorist attack in Afghanistan

Wahid Mujro, a spokesman for the Health Ministry, said 15 wounded were treated at Kabul hospitals.

The death toll in Kabul's PD9 explosion has risen to 20, while 30 others injured in the blast.

President Ashraf Ghani late on January 4 called the attack "inhumane" and against the tenets of Islam.

"The bomber came from among the protesters and targeted our police forces", Rahimi said, adding the attacker was wearing civilian clothes.

The UN Security Council also condemned "the heinous and cowardly" terrorist attack and underlined the need to bring "perpetrators, organisers, financiers and sponsors of these reprehensible acts of terrorism to justice".




The Islamic State group claimed responsibility for the attack.

The security situation in Afghanistan continues to deteriorate.

Kabul police spokesman Basir Mujahid said police were conducting operations against illegal drug and alcohol sales in the area and that security personnel were attempting to maintain safety among crowds that had gathered. No group has yet claimed that attack.

The deadliest of those happened a week ago when a suicide bomber blew himself up inside a Shiite cultural centre in Kabul, killing 41 people and wounding more than 80 others.
