‘AlJazeera’ reports today Tuesday, 10th of Jan. 2017 that twin suicidal attacks in Capital Kabul near parliament killed over 30 and injured 70 persons.
Dozens of people have been killed and scores wounded in two suicide blasts near Afghanistan’s parliament in the capital, Kabul, according to officials, in an attack claimed by the Afghan Taliban.
Security officials said a suicide bomber blew himself up on Tuesday in the Darul Aman area of the city and was followed immediately by a car bomber in an apparently coordinated operation.
The blasts, which followed a period of relative calm in Kabul, tore through employees exiting a parliament annexe, which houses politicians’ offices, leaving the area littered with bloodied bodies.
A health ministry official told Al Jazeera the attack killed at least 30 people and wounded a further 80.
The Taliban said the attack targeted a minibus carrying staff from Afghanistan’s main intelligence agency, killing or wounding as many as 70 people.
