ISIS claims responsibility for dozens killed in Kabul

Islamic State has claimed responsibility for a blast that targeted a voter registration center in Kabul, Afghanistan on Sunday.

The blast was carried out by a suicide bomber and claimed at least 31 lives, with 54 others sustaining injuries, officials said.

No other details were communicated by the AMAQ, the militant group’s news agency.

Interior Ministry spokesman Najib Danesh said a bomber on foot approached the centre where officials had been issuing identity cards as part of a process of registering voters for parliamentary elections due this year.

The latest assault targeting a voter registration center occurred in a heavily Shia-populated neighborhood in the west of the Kabul city.

Afghanistan on April 14 began registering voters for long-delayed legislative elections scheduled for October.
