22 people were killed and 38 injured in the Kabul blast, according to the Interior Ministry spokesman. Later, a Taliban spokesperson claimed responsibility for the suicide bombing which appears to be a second high-profile attack on Afghan government in just one day.
Earlier on Tuesday, an explosive device purportedly attached to a motorbike hit a campaign rally attended by President Ashraf Ghani. He was unhurt in the powerful blast that killed 26 and injured 42 people.
