A series of explosions in Kabul

A series of explosions in Kabul

Kabul witnessed three explosions in two separate parts on Wednesday, security officials confirmed.

Despite repeated pledges by the government to tighten security, hundreds of people have been killed and injured in attacks in the city since the beginning of the year.

That attack was claimed by the Islamic State group.

The initial blast on Wednesday hit a police station in western Kabul's Dasht-e-Barchi district, at around midday, said police spokesman Hashmat Stanekzai.

The attack on the first police station has ended while the operation at the second is ongoing, Danish said.

The United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan said Monday that children made up most of the 107 casualties in the airstrike that Afghan authorities said had targeted senior Taliban commanders planning attacks.

The police then tracked the suspect, surrounding Snyder's home on all sides, as the latter refused to surrender. Three other adults in the home where the three people were killed were able to escape unharmed.

The Islamic State claimed responsibility for both of the attacks in Kabul, which left at least six people wounded, according to Wahidullah Majroh, the spokesman for the Afghan public health ministry.

A suicide bomber struck the entrance to the police station to clear the way for another four attackers, Barmak said.

Asam, the head of the Kabul ambulance service, who only has one name, said six people have been transferred to hospitals.

The Taliban and IS frequently target Afghanistan's Western-backed government and security forces.

"It was revenge for the perpetrators and organisers of that attack who used this centre (in Kabul) to plan and organise the attack (in Kunduz province)", the Taliban said in a statement.

He also added that explosion happened close to different police station. On April 30, at least 41 people, including 10 journalists were killed in a twin suicide bombing and a shooting.

The battle for the compound within the Bilchirgh district, within the northern Faryab province, got here a day after the insurgents captured the district compound within the distant Tala wa Barfak district, within the northern Baghlan province. The district in north-western Afghanistan was captured by Taliban fighters two days ago.
