Kabul: Suicide bomb blast kills at least 19 people at education centre

A suicide bomber has killed 19 people and injured dozens more at an education centre in Afghanistan where teenage girls were sitting an exam.

The explosion took place in a district of Kabul largely populated by the ethnic Hazaras, who belong to Afghanistan’s minority Shia community.

No group has claimed responsibility, but affiliates of the Islamic State group have carried out repeated attacks on schools, hospitals and mosques in Hazara areas.
