Underage suicide bomber kills at least 5 in Kabul
    2017-November-2  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

A SUICIDE bomber believed to be as young as 12 struck Kabul’s heavily fortified diplomatic quarter Tuesday and killed at least five people, showing that militants can still hit the heart of the city despite tighter security.

It was the first attack targeting the Afghan capital’s “Green Zone” since a massive truck bomb ripped through the area May 31, killing or wounding hundreds, and prompting authorities to strengthen protection.

The Islamic State group claimed responsibility for Tuesday’s attack, which follows a spate of suicide assaults by Taliban and IS insurgents on security installations and mosques in recent weeks.

Defense ministry spokesman Dawlat Waziri said the bomber “made it through the first checkpoint but was stopped at the second checkpoint and detonated.”

The attack is a setback for Afghan President Ashraf Ghani, who had promised to beef up the security of the diplomatic zone after the truck bomb detonated outside the German embassy five months ago.

The attack struck the heart of the city’s diplomatic area, where many embassies and the offices of major international organizations including the United Nations and NATO’s Resolute Support mission are located.
