On Tuesday August 29th a suicide bomber blew up Kabul bank near Massoud Square. The intended target appeared to be government workers collecting their pay before Eid celebrations. Five people were killed and several more injured. The Taliban claimed the attack. It is the second attack in four days after a suicide bomber and two gunmen stormed a Shia mosque in Kabul’s Khair Khana district leaving over 30 dead. The attack was claimed by so called Islamic State and was one of several recent attacks on Afghanistan’s Hazara community.
