A NUMBER OF TERRORIST ATTACKS IN AFGHANISTAN KILLS 100 PEOPLE IN THREE DAYS

At least 11 people were killed and dozens were injured in the explosion of a passenger bus in the Afghan province of Zabul, TOLOnews reports citing local authorities.

The bus was blasted by a mine planted on the road, and the TV channel posted a photo of it on its Twitter. The attack took place late on Sunday evening, May 9. According to The Guardian, another bus was blown up by a roadside mine in Parwan province early on Monday morning, May 10. As a result, two people were killed, and nine more were injured.

The buses were blown up after a major terrorist attack at a girls' school in Kabul last Saturday, which killed 85 people (mostly girls between the ages of 11 and 15) and injured about 150 more. According to TOLOnews sources, there were three explosions in the school: first a car exploded, then two rockets were launched.

The Afghan President blamed the Taliban militants for the incident. The representative of the movement responded that the Taliban were not involved in the incident, stressing that they condemn any attacks on peaceful Afghans.

A series of terrorist attacks took place during the beginning of the withdrawal of US forces and its NATO allies from Afghanistan, carried out in accordance with an agreement with the Taliban.
