Taliban claim deadly Kabul suicide attack
Taliban claim responsibility for an attack on a bus carrying government workers that killed at least 35 people.
http://www.aljazeera.com/news/2017/07/casualties-feared-kabul-car-bomb -attack-170724034019038.html

At least 35 people have been killed and more than 40 wounded after a suicide car bomb targeted a bus carrying ministry staff in Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan, officials said.

Intelligence officials told Al Jazeera that the bus was carrying staff of the Ministry of Mines and Petroleum when it came under attack on Monday.

The attack happened just before 7am local time (02:30 GMT) and took place close to the house of the deputy government Chief Executive Mohammad Mohaqi, said officials.

The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack in a statement sent to Al Jazeera.

The bus was destroyed, along with three other cars and several shops in the area, said Kabul's police chief spokesman, Basir Mujahed, adding children were among the wounded.

Najib Danish, an acting interior ministry spokesman, added that the casualty toll could rise.

"It was a very loud blast, and my shop is completely destroyed," Baqi Mohammadi told Al Jazeera.

"The Taliban has attacked innocent people. Who has ever benefited from killing innocent people?"

Spokesman Mujahed said the "bomber struck at one of the busiest times of the day".

"There were traffic jams with people going to work and to the university and schools. Many of the shops had just opened," said Mujahed.

Al Jazeera's Jennifer Glasse, reporting from Kabul, said the Hazara community had called a demonstration for Monday to commemorate a suicide bombing that killed 84 in the same area on July 23 last year.

The Hazaras are one of Afghanistan's largest ethnic minorities, accounting for up to 20 percent of Afghanistan's 30 million inhabitants.

The demonstration was postponed because of security risks.

"Security has been very tight in Kabul," she said. "This morning, new barrier gates went up that limit the height of trucks coming into the city."

Hazaras are often the target of sectarian violence in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
One-year anniversary

On Monday, Kabul's Hazara community was due to mark the one-year anniversary of an attack in the capital that killed 84 and wounded more than 300 people, mostly members of the ethnic minority.

That attack was the first in Afghanistan claimed by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, also known as ISIS) group, which has since carried out multiple attacks targeting the country's Shia minority.

The latest suicide bombing adds to the unrelenting violence in Afghanistan, where at least 1,662 civilians were killed in the first half of the year.

Kabul is regularly rocked by suicide bombs and attacks. A recent UN report showed that attacks on the capital accounted for nearly one-fifth of all Afghan civilian casualties in the first half of 2017.

Many died in a single devastating attack in Kabul in late May when a truck bomb exploded, also during the morning rush hour, killing more than 150 people and injuring hundreds.

The UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan put the civilian death toll at 92, saying it was the deadliest incident to hit the country since 2001.

NATO's combat mission in Afghanistan ended three years ago, handing sole responsibility to the country's security forces, which have also suffered casualties as they try to beat back the Taliban and contain the growing threat from the ISIL group.

Kabul has accounted for at least 20 percent of all civilian casualties this year, including at least 150 people killed in the massive truck bomb attack at the end of May, according to UN figures.

Pakistan blast: Taliban bomb kills 26 in Lahore
24 July 2017
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-40702927

At least 26 people have been killed in a bombing in the eastern Pakistani city of Lahore, officials say.

More than 50 others were injured in the explosion on the busy Ferozepur Road close to a vegetable market in the south of the city.

The Pakistani Taliban said it was behind the explosion.

Reports suggest it was a suicide bomber on a motorbike, and the target may have been police working in the area. Police officers are among the dead.

Windows were blown out in nearby buildings by the force of the blast.

Eyewitness Sher Dil, who works at an office near the site, said he heard a "deafening blast".

The market was full of police at the time because officers had been sent to clear stalls that had illegally spilled into the road.

Who are the Taliban?

"We suspect that he [the suicide bomber] came on a motorcycle and he rammed it into a police checkpoint," Lahore police operations chief Haider Ashraf told Reuters.

Rescue workers have transferred the wounded to hospital, and police and army troops were sent to contain the scene.

Pakistan's president, prime minister and army chief have all expressed their sorrow and condolences for the loss of life.

It is the latest in a series of explosions in Lahore in recent months.

In April, the Pakistani Taliban said they had carried out an attack on workers conducting a government census.

A Taliban faction said it was behind a bomb attack in Lahore in February which killed 13 people and wounded more than 80.

The Pakistani Taliban is loosely allied with Afghanistan's Taliban insurgents, but targets the Pakistani government.

Update July 25 2017: Police later said they did not believe the attacker had used a motorbike but had been on foot.
