April 22, 2018: At least 31 persons lost their lives and over 50 were wounded in Kabul, Afghanistan a suicide bombing took place at a voter registration centre on Sunday.


Reportedly, the assailant detonated his explosives at the doorway of the ID distribution centre in the capital at 10am (05:30 GMT) on Sunday. The large explosion echoed across the city, shattering windows miles away from the attack site and damaging several nearby vehicles.
The blast took place in Dasht-e Barchi, an area of western Kabul inhabited by many members of the mainly Shi'ite Hazara minority, which has been repeatedly hit by attacks claimed by Islamic State.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack however the Taliban's main spokesman issued a statement on Twitter denying involvement.
As per reports voter registration centers have been set up across Afghanistan ahead of long-delayed parliamentary and district council elections due to be held in October and there have been serious concerns that militants might attack them.
The attack occurred a day after a presidential spokesman in a statement released to media said that Ghani spoke to top army commanders by phone and instructed them to pay “close attention to ensuring security of the voters’ registration centers.”
