Casualties reported after explosion at educational center in Kabul
Casualties have been reported in Afghanistan’s capital Kabul following an explosion at an education center, the city’s police said.
The explosion took place at the Kaaj education center Friday morning at 7:30 a.m., local time (11 p.m. ET), Kabul Police Spokesman Khalid Zadran told CNN.
“Unfortunately, the explosion has caused human casualties. Security forces have reached the area and we will share the type of the explosion and casualty figures later,” Zadran added.
A string of attacks in Kabul have claimed dozens of lives in recent weeks.
Earlier this month, two Russian embassy employees were among six people killed in a suicide blast near the Russian embassy, and in August, an explosion at a mosque during evening prayers killed 21 people and injured 33 more.
