Bomb attack on a charity center in Afghanistan’s capital Kabul


An attack on the offices of an international charity in the centre of the Afghan capital, Kabul, has left at least one civilian dead, officials say.

Gunfire erupted when four armed men stormed the building of the aid group Care in the Shar-e-Naw area following a car bomb explosion.

All attackers were killed. No group has admitted carrying out the attack, the fifth to hit the city in 24 hours.

Taliban militants have increased their attacks in Kabul recently.

On Monday, a series of blasts claimed by the group hit a busy part of the city, close to the defence ministry building.

Officials now say 35 people were killed, including an army general and four senior police officers. Some 103 others were wounded, they added.
