Sixteen students killed in an attack on madrassa in Afghanistan

A madrassa was attacked by a bomb on Wednesday, leaving at least 16 people dead and 24 more injured in the northern Afghan city of Aybak.

Since the Taliban regained control in August of last year, there have been numerous explosions and attacks that targeted civilians, with the local ISIS chapter claiming responsibility for the majority of them.

The majority of the casualties were children, according to a doctor in Aybak, 200 kilometres (130 miles) north of Kabul.

The doctor told AFP, on condition of anonymity, “All of them are kids and regular people.”

The explosion was confirmed by a provincial official, who was unable to provide casualty information.

Earlier, an explosion that hit a car in the capital of Afghanistan Kabul last week claimed the lives of two persons, according to the local police.

“A bomb in a car resembling a Corolla has claimed the lives of two people.”

A spokesman for the Taliban-controlled police force in Kabul Khalid Zadran said that the identity of those killed is not clear.
