Suicide bombers in Kabul have killed at least six people and injured a further 11 in attacks targeting schools.

At least six people have been killed, including students and 11 others injured in explosions targeting educational institutions in Kabul, Afghan police have stated. The explosions took place this morning, in the Shiite Muslim majority neighbourhood of Dasht-e-Barchi in Kabul, Afghanistan at the Abdul Rahim Shaheed High School and near the Mumtaz Education Center which is located several kilometres away. Several of victims are reportedly in a critical condition.

The explosions took place in rapid succession and are currently being investigated with even more casualties feared, according to Khalid Zadran.

Witnesses have reported that a suicide bomber allegedly  blew himself up inside the school which is believed to house up to 1,0000 students.

The difficulty of finding accurate reports has increased dramatically since the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan following the withdrawal of the US and other Nation’s troops including Britain in 2021, with one twitter user pointing out the nature of the Taliban when it comes to journalism:

“A hand grenade and two suicide bombs will cause significantly high casualties, but Taliban does not release figures, nor allow journalists to film or produce exact reports even @TOLOnews cannot release real figures #Taliban #Daesh #ISK #Hazara #Barchi #Kabul #Afghanistan #Unsafe”
