A suicide bomber on foot detonated as employees were boarding a bus to go home in the parking lot of the court compound in Kabul.
22 people were killed and 48 injured on Tuesday in a blast by a suicide bomber in Afghanistan’s Supreme Court in Kabul, officials said.
The suicide bomber detonated himself as employees were boarding a bus to go home in the parking lot of the court compound, located on the road leading from the international airport to the U.S. embassy, Interior Ministry spokesman Najibullah Danish told AFP.
The casualty figures came from Health Ministry spokesman Waheed Majroh, who said that women and children were among the wounded.
Police blocked off the road around the compound as panicked relatives of court employees began to gather, and ambulances and fire trucks arrived on the scene.
