Afghanistan: Suicide bomber in Kabul kills several police officers

So called Islamic State have claimed responsibility for the blast.

All of the dead were police.

A suicide attacker on foot detonated his explosives, a spokesman for the city's police chief said.

Nasrat Rahimi, a deputy spokesperson at the Interior Ministry, said that civilians and members of the security forces were among the casualties.

"The US strongly condemns today's barbaric attack at a cultural and social centre in Kabul, Afghanistan, and offers its deepest condolences to the victims and their families", she said.

This comes as the local residents and eyewitnesses in the area had earlier said that the suicide attack took place at the end of a demonstration in the area.

Security in Kabul has been ramped up since May 31 when a massive truck bomb ripped through the diplomatic quarter, killing some 150 people and wounding around 400 others - mostly civilians.

But experts say IS operates several cells in the city, enabling the group to plan and carry out attacks under the noses of Afghan security and intelligence agencies.
