Afghan police Kabul suicide attack death toll soars to 20

Islamic State claimed responsibility for the deadly blast.

"We can confirm that so far 11 bodies have been brought to our hospitals as well as 25 wounded", the AFP news agency quoted Health Ministry spokesman Wahid Majroh as saying on January 4.

In a statement Thursday, President Ashraf Ghani called the attack "inhumane" and against the tenets of Islam.

The death toll in the Kabul suicide attack on Thursday evening has risen to 15, while 20 people have suffered injuries.

Witnesses told RFE/RL that the blast could be heard throughout the capital.

Paris Hilton gets engaged and the ring is HUGE
This will be the first marriage for Hilton, who was previously engaged to model Jason Shaw and Greek shipping heir Paris Latsis. Hilton told USA magazine People that the engagement ring is "so gorgeous and sparkling".

According to witnesses, a suicide bomber detonated his explosive while a confrontation between civilians and police forces was going on.

The attack happened near the U.S. Embassy where security personnel are reported to have been carrying out an operation against illegal drugs and alcohol.

Isis' latest onslaught marks a sharp escalation of such attacks even as the Afghan Taliban, which fiercely competes for more influence, has also stepped its offensive in the war-torn country.

Several days ago a suicide bomber killed more than 40 people at a Shi'ite cultural centre in the capital. It was the third deadly attack claimed by the extremist group in December alone.
