- The bombing targeted the Afghan National Civil Order Police headquarters, the Afghan Interior Ministry says
The Taliban are responsible for it, said Zabihullah Mujahid, a Taliban spokesman.
The target of the bombing was the headquarters of the Afghan National Civil Order Police, said Sediq Sediqqi, an Afghan Interior Ministry spokesman.
"These attacks won't deter our determination to fight terrorists," Sediqqi added.
In a news release, Afghan President Ashraf Ghani
also condemned the attack, calling it an unforgivable act.
In early January, Mujahid said the Taliban were behind one of two suicide bombings
near Kabul's international airport. No one was killed, but at least 28 people were injured in the blasts, said Ismail Kawoosi, an Afghan Health Ministry spokesman.
Part of the airport is used for military purposes.
