Afghanistan: Islamic State Claim Responsibility for Kabul Attack

The Islamic State (IS) group have claimed responsibility for a suicide bombing attack in Kabul on 9 September (Martyrs' Day), in which the motorcycle-riding assailant detonated his explosives near a march commemorating the assassination of Ahmad Shah Massoud. At least 7 people were killed and 25 injured in the attack.

Kabul has seen a sharp increase in bombings and other attacks against security forces and civilians since the Taliban announced the beginning of their spring offensive on 25 April. Avoid all non-essential travel to Afghanistan. Afghanistan's Western-backed government is fighting an intensifying war with both the Taliban and ISIL. All travel within Afghanistan remains unsafe due to the ongoing risk of kidnapping, hostage taking, military combat operations, landmines, banditry, armed rivalry between political and tribal groups, Islamic State militant attacks, direct and indirect fire, suicide bombings and insurgent attacks, including attacks using vehicle-borne or other improvised explosive devices. Government facilities, news stations, embassies, military installations, guest houses, commercial entities, non-governmental organisations, offices, restaurants, hotels, airports, schools and universities continue to be popular targets.
