At least 25 school children are reported to have been killed in two horrific bombings in the Afghan capital, Kabul. It is being told that two blasts happened one after the other after a school in Dasht-e-Barchi area of Pashmichi Kabul. When the blast happened, the children were coming out of the school. Afghanistan’s Interior Ministry has confirmed these explosions. However, the official death toll has not yet come.
According to Tolo News, one blast took place near Mumtaz Training Center while the other exploded in front of Abdul Rahim Shaheed High School. The children were coming out of their classrooms when the explosion took place. Afghanistan’s Interior Ministry has said it is investigating the blasts and more details will be shared later. Some reports claim that a total of three blasts took place in Kabul.
According to eyewitnesses, two blasts took place in the Abdul Rahim Shaheed High School itself. At least 25 children have died in this. Abdul Rahim Shaheed High School is one of the most popular schools in western Kabul. All the children studying in this school belonged to the minority Hazara community, which is often the target of terrorists. There have been many attacks on the people of the Hazara community under the Taliban rule in the past. So far no group has claimed responsibility for these attacks.
