An educational center in Kabul, welcoming students, was targeted Friday morning by an explosion which left “several dead”, announced the Ministry of the Interior.
“An educational center called 'Kaj' was attacked, unfortunately there were deaths and injuries,” tweeted Abdul Nafy Takor, spokesperson for the Ministry of Interior.
This educational center prepares students for their university entrance exams.
Security teams are on site, the nature of the attack and details of the victims will be communicated later.
“Attacking civilian targets proves the enemy's inhuman cruelty and lack of moral standards,” Abdul Nafy Takor added. Videos posted on social media and photos published by local media show bloodied victims being carried from the scene of the explosion.
As of April 20, at least six people were killed and 24 injured in two explosions that hit a school for boys in the same district in the west of the capital.
Dasht-e-Barchi has been hit in recent years and since the return to power of the Taliban by several attacks claimed by EI-K, the regional branch of the Islamic State group, which considers the Hazaras to be heretics.
