The death toll from a suicide bombing in Afghanistan’s capital on Wednesday has jumped to 48, according to ABC News. The bombing occurred in the Shiite Dasht-i Barcha neighborhood of Kabul, and targeted “a training class in a private building” that was reportedly preparing male and female high-school graduates for “university entrance exams.” Officials say 67 others were wounded in the attack and its aftermath. President Ashraf Ghani condemned the “terrorist bombing,” saying the attacker “martyred and wounded the innocent.” “[B]y targeting educational and cultural centers, terrorists have clearly shown they are against all those Islamic principles [that strive] for both men and women to learn and study,” he said. While officials have pinned the attack on the Islamic State terror group, no one has come forward to claim responsibility.
