The Taliban claim to have stepped up security since returning to power in August last year, but there have been a number of bomb explosions and attacks, many of which were claimed by local branches of the Islamic State group.
Emergency NGO, a non-governmental organization that operates a hospital just 1 km from the blast site, said it had received 21 casualties, including three dead on arrival.
It did not say whether those killed were civilians or involved in the attack.
A spokesperson for the Kabul police said three attackers were killed and one suspect arrested, blaming the attack on what police called “rogue elements”.
” All hotel guests have been rescued and no foreigners have died. Only two foreign guests were injured when they threw themselves from the top floor,” Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid said on Twitter, as quoted AFP, Tuesday (13/12/2022)
