Islamic State claims Afghanistan blast, without giving evidence - Amaq

CAIRO (Reuters) - Islamic State has claimed responsibility for an attack that killed at least seven people in the Afghan capital on Thursday, the group’s official news agency Amaq said, without providing any evidence.

“A suicide bomber from Islamic State detonated his explosive vest at a gathering of members of the ”Gameaya Islamiya“ in the middle of Kabul city,” Amaq said in a statement.
