KABUL: Terror attacks near an education centre and on a bus in Kabul on Saturday left at least 27 people dead and scores of others injured.

A suicide bomber struck near an education centre in the Afghan capital, killing at least 18 people in the latest attack to rock the conflict-wracked country.

The suicide attack, which also wounded 57, happened late afternoon at the centre, which offers training and courses for students in higher education in a western district of Kabul. The Islamic State (IS) group claimed responsibility for the attack.

The suicide attack came hours after a roadside bomb tore through a bus east of Kabul, killing nine civilians. Officials blamed that blast on the Taliban.

APP adds: Pakistan condemned in the strongest possible terms the inhuman terrorist attack outside an educational centre in Dasht-e-Barchi area of Kabul city that resulted in loss of innocent lives, including children, and injuries to several others.
