Islamic State claims responsibility for deadly Kabul bombing

Kabul attack

The death toll in Kabul's PD9 explosion has risen to 20, while 30 others injured in the blast.

"The bomber came from among the protesters and targeted our police forces", Rahimi said, adding the attacker was wearing civilian clothes.

Wahid Mujro, a spokesman for the Health Ministry, said 15 wounded were treated at Kabul hospitals.

But experts say IS operates several cells in the city, enabling the group to plan and carry out attacks under the noses of Afghan security and intelligence agencies.

The United States condemned a "barbaric" attack on a Shiite cultural centre in Afghanistan that killed 41 people and vowed to "work closely" with the Afghan government to hunt down the terrorists.

Tolo News reported that local residents had participated in a street demonstration in the area earlier in the day. It was the third deadly attack claimed by the extremist group in December alone.

The capital has become one of the deadliest places in war-torn Afghanistan for civilians in recent months, as the Taliban step up attacks and Isis seeks to expand its presence in the country.

US forces led an invasion to drive Taliban extremists from power after Al-Qaeda militants whose leaders were sheltering in Afghanistan carried out the September 11, 2001, attacks on the United States.
