Death toll in terrorist attack in Kabul rises to 20 people

Dozens of casualties as suicide blast hits Afghan capital Kabul

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

Pakistan strongly condemned the terrorist attack in Kabul last evening in which many Afghans lost their lives while a number of people were injured.

The death toll from an Islamic State-claimed suicide attack in Kabul has risen to 13, officials said Friday, adding to the carnage caused by the militant group in the Afghan capital.

A police official told Efe news that the suicide attacker was on foot and wore a vest loaded with explosives that he detonated near the policemen watching the demonstration.

Earlier, 11 dead and about 25 wounded were reported.

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.

In the past few months the Taliban have also stepped up attacks. It was the third deadly attack claimed by the extremist group in December alone.

The IS group has gained ground in Afghanistan since it first appeared in the region in 2015 and has scaled up its attacks in Kabul, including on security installations and the country's Shiite minority.
