Suicide attack on Afghan voter registration center kills 31

KABUL: At least 31 people were killed and more than 50 wounded by a suicide bombing at a voter registration center in Kabul, Afghanistan, on Sunday. The Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attack, which targeted would-be voters lining up to receive ID cards for a parliamentary election scheduled for October.

“There were women, children,” said Bashir Ahmad, who was nearby when the bomb exploded. “Everyone had come to get their identity cards.” This is the deadliest attack Afghanistan has suffered since January.
