Kabul blast: At least 13 killed in Afghan ministry attack


Kabul: At least 13 people have been killed and 31 wounded in a suicide bombing at a government ministry in Afghanista­n.

Women and children were among the casualties, according to an official.

Workers at the Department of Rural Rehabilita­tion and Developmen­t in Kabul had left early for Ramadan and were waiting for a bus when the blast hit.

The Islamic State group (IS) said it was behind the attack, which came just days after the Taliban agreed to its first-ever truce with the government.
