A coordinated double suicide bombing hit central Kabul on Monday morning, killing 25 people and wounding 45 others.

Kabul police spokesman Hashmat Stanekzai confirmed that four policemen were killed, while an Afghan media watchdog, the Afghan Journalists Safety Committee (AJSC), confirmed that eight journalists were also killed. The AJSC said that six journalists were reportedly wounded in the attacks. Agence France-Presse (AFP) confirmed that its chief photographer Shah Marai, a journalist from 1TV and one from Tolo News were among the dead. A first bomb was detonated by an assailant on a motorcycle and left at least four dead and five injured, according to the Interior Ministry.

A second explosion came minutes after the first targeted reporters at the scene, Stanekzai told AFP. “The bomber disguised himself as a journalist and detonated himself among the crowd,” he said.

  1. Reblogged this on Progressive Islam. and commented:
    No day without killing innocent people. Very sad, pity, heartbreaking—
    As I say here, there is not permanent peace, killing innocent people will not end— until Saudi Arabia obey Human Right, freedom of religion, justice for all.

    Why Saudi? Because Saudi wa a place where Islam was born, every yesr Million Muslim go to Meccah for Hajji. So Saudi is still a central of Islamic country in the world.

    If Saudi obey Human Right, accepting Shiah, ahmadiyy, christian and other religion, the world will be peace again, Islam will be a great religion again.
    This is my thought. What do you thing Ahmadiyya

    All love ❤️
