"Under his leadership, the TTP has also claimed responsibility for the December 16, 2014, attack on a school in Peshawar, Pakistan in which gunmen killed 148 people, including 132 students".

The group has not publicly responded to Ghani's invitation and previously said it would negotiate only with US officials.

Amin said the bomber detonated his explosive device at a checkpoint "after being identified by police".

"Suicide attacks are a part of our daily life that we see but can't do anything about", said Hayad, who uses only one name, and is a resident of the Hazara neighbourhood where the explosion took place.

Also, Pakistani Taliban on Friday confirmed the loss of their 21 members in a rare USA drone strike on their alleged training facility in Afghanistan's eastern Kunar province near the border with Pakistan's Mohmand Agency.

The attacks underscore the difficulties President Ashraf Ghani's government is facing as it battles a revamped Taliban insurgency and struggles to rein in the Islamic State extremist group, whose affiliate in Afghanistan has grown stronger since it emerged in 2014.

A suicide bomber exploded in the Afghan capital Kabul, killing at least seven people, Reuters reported.

The spokesman for the Health Ministry, Wahid Majro, said several of the wounded were in critical condition and feared the death toll could rise further. Mazari was killed by the Taliban in 1995.

In other developments, the Taliban launched a deadly assault overnight on an army outpost in a remote region of Afghanistan's northern Takhar province, killing six soldiers and wounding five in a blistering hours-long attack, Defence Ministry spokesman Dawlat Waziri said.

The report couldn't be independently confirmed because of the remoteness of the area.
