World | incidents | 14:00, 25 April 2018 | 373

AKIPRESS.COM - The ministry of public health on Tuesday issued an update on the casualty toll from Sunday’s suicide bombing in Kabul and said 60 people had been killed in the attack, Tolonews reported.

In addition, the ministry said 129 people had been wounded.

According to the ministry, nine children were among those killed and another 18 children were wounded.

Sunday’s suicide bombing targeted a population registration center in Dasht-e-Barchi in Kabul city, where dozens of people had gathered to apply for their ID documents in order to register to vote.

The suicide bomber reportedly detonated his explosives among the crowd outside the offices.

Daesh claimed responsibility for the incident.

Since April 14, the start of the voter registration process, five attacks have been carried out on election-related facilities across the country.

Just two hours after Sunday’s bombing, five people were killed and six others wounded in Pul-e-Khumri city in Baghlan province after an IED was detonated at a voter registration center – bringing the number of confirmed attacks against the election process to five in only six days.

Sunday’s attacks come after three others on election centers in a matter of days.
