ISIS Claims Responsibility For Deadly Attack Aimed At Afghan Hazaras

The compound inside the Afghan border is believed to have been used by Mullah Fazlullah head of the Pakistani Taliban and the dead are said to include his son Abdullah

In a statement on Friday, Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi condemned the deadly terrorist attack on people in Kabul, expressing condolences to the Afghan government, nation, and families of victims of the "blind crime".

When the bomber stopped at a checkpoint, he triggered the explosive device, killing one policeman and six civilians.

Local Hazara leader Mohammad Mohaqiq told the gathering that the explosion was an attempt to terrorize Afghans.

She also said Washington had not seen "decisive and sustained changes from Pakistan", which Afghan and US officials have accused of supporting the Taliban.

The bomber appeared to have meant to attack a crowd gathered to mark the anniversary of the killing of Hazara political leader Abdul Ali Mazari by the Taliban in 1995, but he was stopped before reaching the main gathering.

However, Public Health Ministry spokesman Wahid Majroh disputed the number, saying the suicide bombing claimed 10 lives and wounding 22 others.

Afghan President Ashraf Ghani at an worldwide conference in Kabul last week unveiled a plan to open talks with the Taliban, including eventually recognising them as a political party.

A security guard, Ali Reza, said he saw the suicide attacker walk into a line of Hazaras waiting to enter a mosque complex for a ceremony commemorating a revered leader, Abdul Ali Mazari.

The overnight Taliban attack in northern Takhar Province took place in a remote region of the district of Khwaja Ghar. "Security forces didn't allow us to move afterwards", he said.

"The offer of negotiation is on the table", United Nations envoy to Afghanistan Tadamichi Yamamoto told a Security Council meeting on Thursday to mark the annual renewal of the United Nations mission to the war-torn country.
