ISIS claims responsibility for deadly suicide bombing in Afghanistan

WASHINGTON — ISIS has claimed responsibility for a deadly suicide bombing in Afghanistan that killed at least 10 people.

The suicide bomber walked up to the entrance of Afghanistan’s national intelligence agency and blew himself up as employees were heading to work Monday.

The deaths appear to be civilians and passersby.

Another five people were injured.

One victim was a woman whose car was driving past the intelligence agency at the time of the terrorist attack.

The causality numbers could rise, according to Kabul hospital officials.

Islamic State militants have been active in Afghanistan since 2015 and have taken responsibility for a recent spate of violence.

Last week, a training facility for the same intelligence agency was targeted for another ISIS attack.

President Trump was briefed on the attack as he celebrated Christmas with his family at Mar-a-Lago.
