Attacks in Afghanistan kill 6 police

Afghan officials say a suicide bombing and a auto bomb attack at a wrestling training centre in a Shiite neighbourhood of the capital have killed at least 20 people and wounded 70.

At least 15 people were killed and 26 others were injured.

A suicide bomber blew himself up inside the club, while about 40 minutes later a auto bomb went off nearby, targeting rescue workers and journalists.

In a separate incident, 11 members of the security forces were killed after Taliban stormed several checkpoints in the western province of Badghis, late on Wednesday.

The Taliban militants group in Afghanistan has rejected involvement in last evening's coordinated attack in Kabul city that left scores of people dead or wounded.


"We join Afghans in expressing our revulsion at such a callous attack", Yamamoto said. "I am still searching for many missing students and coaches". "There are a lot of dead and wounded", Mohammad Hanif said on Facebook.

People who claimed to have witnessed the attack said the bomber killed the guards at the club before blowing himself up inside.

Affiliates of Daesh have claimed responsibility for all of the attacks, which have targeted Shiites in recent years in Afghanistan. IS said it was behind that attack, which drew global condemnation and came amid a wave of deadly violence across the country.

It is specified that the explosion occurred about 6 p.m.in the club of the fight "Meal". He did not see the suicide bomber enter the room, but he felt the "flying shrapnel" as it pierced his abdomen.
