  • Kabul deadly blast sources killed, injured, Taliban claims responsibility

Later, anor spokesman of same ministry, Ismail Kawosi, has indicated to Efe that "until now 31 wounded" have been taken to emergency Hospital of Kabul, although number of victims is expected to increase.

A week ago, Taliban carried an attack on Afghan Intercontinental Hotel which left at least 22 people killed. "The perpetrators of these attacks and their supporters should be brought to justice".

Every time the so-called ring of steel in the city is penetrated, it undermines the government's ability to appear in control of even its most important sanctuaries, he said. "Our thoughts are with the victims and their families, and we stand with the fearless people of #Afghanistan". The attack started when four gunmen entered the hotel and started shooting the guests.

The Taliban has claimed responsibility for the attack, which sent thick, dark smoke into the sky from the site of the explosion near a former government building.

After the attack, dozens of people waited outside the Emergency Hospital for news of their loved ones, including Mohammadullah, a young travel agent whose friend was missing.

President Donald Trump called for "decisive action" against the Taliban on Saturday after a bomb attack killed at least 95 people in one of the biggest blasts to rock war-torn Kabul in years.

"The suicide bomber took an ambulance from the Jamhuriat Hospital park and crossed the first police checkpoint of the Ministry of Interior but he was identified reaching the second checkpoint where he detonated his explosives", he said.

The Afghan government and Afghan National Defense and security forces are working tirelessly to defend all Afghans and respond to these attacks with bravery and professionalism, he said.

The explosion happened in a busy part of the city where the High Peace Council, which is charged with negotiating with the Taliban, has offices. "Their work to create a peaceful, prosperous future for all the citizens of this country is the best response to terrorists and others who know only violence". The attack was instigated by Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.

The Jamuriate hospital, the nearest to the scene, was overwhelmed, with many people lying in corridors waiting to be treated. ISIS was involved in at least 10 fatal attacks in Afghanistan previous year.
