At least 100 children died in a suicide bombing at an education centre in Kabul, according to reports. As per a local journalist, students, mostly Hazaras and Shias, were killed in the incident. The Hazaras are Afghanistan’s third largest ethnic group.
The blast took place at the Kaaj education centre in the Dasht-e-Barchi area in the west of the city, BBC reported.
A local journalist, Bilal Sarwary, tweeted, “We have so far counted 100 dead bodies of our students. The number of students killed is much higher. Classroom was packed. This was a mock university entrance exam, so students could prepare for the real one.”
Recalling the horror, the scribe said one of the instructors at Kaaaj higher education center picked up human body parts and picked up hands and legs.
“Students were preparing for an exam when a suicide bomber struck at this educational centre. police spokesman Khalid Zadran had said.
Karen Decker, charge d’affaires at the US mission to Afghanistan, said in a tweet, “The U.S. strongly condemns today’s attack on the Kaaj Higher Educational Center. Targeting a room full of students taking exams is shameful; all students should be able to pursue an education in peace & without fear.”
