A suicide blast in the Afghanistan capital of Kabul has killed 25 people, the Health Ministry has said. A further 35 were wounded in the explosion that occurred on Wednesday in a mainly Shi’ite area of the city.
A suspected suicide bomber blew himself up outside an educational center in the western part of the capital.
No one has claimed responsibility for the attack, although Islamic State (formerly ISIS) has previously said it was responsible for attacks on Shi’ite targets.
The incident comes as the government faces pressure over a Taliban attack in the city of Ghazni, which led to five days of fighting in the capital, claiming the lives of hundreds of civilians and members of the security forces.
