RNA - Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi condemned the suicide attack that happened in Kabul, sympathizing with the people and government of Afghanistan. 

 

According to Fars News Agancy, a suicide bomber struck a private education center in a Shiite neighborhood in Kabul on Wednesday where high school graduates were preparing for university entrance exams, killing 48 young people and leaving behind a scene of devastation and tragedy.

 

A spokesperson for the public health ministry, Wahid Majroh, said 67 people were also wounded in the bombing and that the death toll — which steadily rose in the immediate aftermath of the attack — could rise further. He did not say if all the victims were students or whether any of their teachers were among the casualties.

 

No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, but Jawad Ghawari, a member of the city's Shiite clerical council, blamed the ISIL terrorist group, which has carried similar attacks in the past, hitting mosques, schools and cultural centers.
