At Least 20 Killed In Kabul Suicide Bombing

At least 20 people have been killed in a suicide bombing at Afghanistan’s Supreme Court in Kabul, officials said. A further 45 people were injured in the blast on Tuesday, with the death toll expected to rise.

The attacker detonated their suicide vest in the car park as employees and other people were coming out of the main court building, according to reports. Najib Danish, deputy spokesman for the Interior Ministry, said that an investigation was underway.

No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack but the Taliban has been responsible for attacks on the court in the past. In a similar incident in 2013, a suicide bomber killed 13 people after detonating his vest in the same car park.
