Local Editor

As part of the continuous attacks in Afghanistan, at least 20 people have been killed and another 70 were wounded in an attack in the capital, Kabul, according to Waheed Majrooh, health ministry spokesman.

The Taliban claimed responsibility Saturday's assault, with reports confirming that the explosion was close to an old interior ministry building.

The incident comes a week after a Taliban-claimed attack on the Intercontinental Hotel in the city, which left 18 dead, and days after Daesh [Arabic Acronym for the terrorist "ISIS"/"ISIL"] killed at least three people at the office of Save the Children in Jalalabad.

According to reports, the blast took place at lunchtime during a "relatively calm day".

"The city was jolted with a heavy explosion," he said.

A police stated that a suicide bomber carried out the attack near heavily guarded checkpoints.

"On the left side of this checkpoint, there is a school and a high peace council," Shahood said.
