Officials: One Killed as Suicide Bomber Targets Kabul School

Thursday, 11 Dec 2014 09:30 AM

A suicide bomber detonated himself Thursday at a high school next to the French cultural center in Kabul, killing at least one person and wounding 15 others, officials said.

The attack comes just hours after another suicide bomber targeted a bus carrying Afghan troops in the suburbs of Kabul, killing at least six soldiers.

"A suicide bomber blew himself up among the audience in Istiqlal High School (French Cultural Center)," Afghan interior ministry spokesman Sediqi Sediqqi told AFP.

Deputy Interior Minister Mohammed Ayub Salangi said at least one person was killed and 15 others were wounded in the attack.

The toll was confirmed by another police official.

Kabul has been hit by a spate of deadly attacks in recent weeks, heightening concerns that Afghanistan could tip into a spiral of violence as the US-led military presence declines.

Thursday's attack came as Washington announced it no longer holds any prisoners in Afghanistan, a day after a damning U.S. Senate report on the brutal treatment of "war on terror" detainees.
