Afghanistan: High school in Kabul hit by multiple explosions

Kabul, April 19 : A boys’ school in the western Kabul’s Dasht-e-Barchi neighbourhood was hit by at least 3 explosions, Al Jazeera reported. The neighbourhood where the explosion took place is home to a large number of Shia Hazara comm ty, an ethnic and religious minority frequently targeted by ISIL (ISIS) groups in the past. “Three blasts have taken place … in a high school, there are some casualties to our Shia people,” said Khalid Zadran, the spokesman for Kabul police. The explosions took place as students were coming out after attending their morning classes at the Abdul Rahim Shahid high school. According to reports at least four people had been killed and 14 wounded in the blasts. No one has so far claimed responsibility for the attack. Despite the Taliban claiming to have secured the country international officials and analysts say that the risk of an insurgency remains. Many of the attacks in the past several months have been claimed by the ISIL group. ACL GNK
