At Least 3 Killed in ISIS Bombing in Kabul

Oct.31: After a suicide attack in Kabul on Tuesday killed three persons, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj assured that all the Indians in the city were safe.

In May, a massive truck bomb blast ripped through the diplomatic district, killing at least 80 people and wounding hundreds in a powerful explosion described by officials as "one of the biggest" to have hit the capital of Afghanistan.

Daesh claimed responsibility for the latest attack through its propaganda website Amaq.

Western officials say the campaign has inflicted significant casualties on Taliban fighters in the provinces but say the battlefield losses may push the insurgents to attack Kabul and other high profile targets.

Witnesses said they saw multiple casualties being carried from the scene of the blast and driven away in ambulances.

Afghan security forces stand guard at the explosion site in Kabul, capital of Afghanistan, on October 31, 2017. According to the television channel, a suicide bomber blew himself up in Kabul's diplomatic quarters Wazir Akbar Khan.

Initial reports suggest that the suicide bomber detonated explosives inside Kabul Green Zone close to Australian embassy.
