Afghan President Vows No Weakening Of Democratic Process After Deadly Blast

Afghanistan Nine killed dozens injured in Kabul suicide bombing

"It was a suicide attack", Amin told AFP. No group claimed credit for the attack, but Taliban insurgents are known to be active in the area.

According to Reuters, the so-called Islamic State claimed responsibility for the blast through its AMAQ news agency.

The ministry of public health reported that at least 57 people were dead and 119 wounded, but the total could still rise.

It was the deadliest blast in the capital since about 100 people were killed in January by a bomb concealed in an ambulance and it came after repeated warnings militants could try to disrupt the election process. Parliamentary elections are now scheduled for October. In this respect, France reaffirms its support for the initiatives presented by President Ashraf Ghani of Afghanistan during the second meeting of the Kabul Process for Peace and Security Cooperation on February 28.

Afghanistan began registering voters on Sunday, April 15 for the long-delayed parliamentary elections, which are due to take place in October.

Thompson and Durant will again combine for 50-plus points, and will lead the Warriors to a 3-0 series lead with a 111-103 win. The Warriors have been given just a 3.5-point handicap, presumably owing to the fact that the Spurs are so good at home.

Unless the process of registering millions of voters can be completed before winter starts in November, the parliamentary elections would nearly certainly have to be postponed until next year.

Since the Persian New Year, a tense calm has permeated the Afghan capital as people brace for the Taleban's launch of its customary spring offensive.

Afghan security officials say more than 1 thousand voting centers are under high security threats, and 950 are outside of the government's control.

Some Western and Afghan officials expect 2018 to be a particularly bloody year.

"We hope the security forces prevent such terrorist attacks in future so that people can register to vote in a peaceful environment", Daulati told a meeting broadcast by Ariana TV.
