The Islamic State terror group on Thursday claimed responsibility for the suicide bombing in Kabul a day earlier, which killed 34 students and wounded 57 others in a Shiite area of the Afghan capital. The statement was posted on the Amaq news agency and claimed that “martyrdom-seeking brother Abdul Raouf al-Khorasani” executed the attack. Overnight, Afghan officials revised downward the death toll, which had been reported to be as high as 48. Also Thursday, gunmen are said to have launched an attack on a building belonging to the Afghan intelligence service, also in Kabul, as many worked to hold funeral prayers for the students killed Wednesday.
