Suicide bomber attack hits Kabul, dozens killed

A suicide bomber killed at least 26 people today, many of them teenagers, in front of Kabul University, officials said.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the deadly attack, but the Taliban denied involvement on Twitter.

Another 18 people were wounded in the blast, interior ministry spokesman Nasrat Rahimi said, "all of them civilians".

According to a spokesman, a suicide attacker on foot detonated himself in front of a hospital. The hospital is opposite Kabul University, AFP reported.

The bomber was less than 200 metres from Karte Sakhi shrine where many Afghans gather every year to mark Nawrooz, which is the traditional Persian new year holiday.
