TEHRAN (IQNA) – Tens of civilians, mostly schoolgirls, lost their lives in explosions caused by a car bomb and mortar shells targeting the Sayyid al-Shuhada school in the Shia majority neighborhood of Dasht-e-Barchi in western Kabul on Saturday.

Afghan President Ashraf Ghani said the Taliban militant group was responsible. The Taliban, however, did not claim responsibility for the blast. According to some media reports, the Daesh Takfiri terrorist group claimed responsibility for the attack.
