Kabul: Multiple Blasts Near A Girls School Kill 25, Dozens Injured

Three back-to-back blasts near a girl’s school in Kabul on Saturday killed at least 25 people, and injured over 20, said officials on Saturday.

According to the reports, the blast took place near Sayed-ul-Shuhada High School in the west of Kabul on Saturday afternoon, when the students were leaving the school, the Ministry of Interior confirmed.

No group or individual has so far claimed responsibility for the blasts.

Reports say the majority of victims are girls.

Footage on TV channel ToloNews showed chaotic scenes outside the school, with books and school bags strewn across a bloodstained road, and residents rushing to help victims.

“The horrendous attack in Dasht-i Barchi area in Kabul is a despicable act of terrorism. Targeting primarily students in a girls’ school makes this an attack on the future of Afghanistan. On young people determined to improve their country. Our thoughts go to all affected” EU Mission in Afghanistan tweeted.
