A car bomb has exploded in western Kabul, killing dozens of people. The attack, which has been claimed by the Taliban happened near the home of the deputy to Afghan Chief Executive Abdullah Abdullah, Deutsche Welle reports.  

The death toll from Monday morning’s car bombing in the west of Kabul could rise further, according to the Interior Ministry.

At least 24 people were dead and more than 40 were injured in the blast in the Afghan capital, officials said.

Acting ministry spokesman Najib Danish said the target of the attack remained unclear, and that all the dead and wounded were civilians. He added that three vehicles and 15 shops were destroyed in the blast.

In a statement, the Interior Ministry called the blast a “criminal attack against humanity.”
