In Afghanistan, a suicide bombing occurred today in front of the Russian embassy. Two Russian diplomats have died in this, and 11 people are injured. Local police said the suicide bomber was killed on his way to the embassy.


The Taliban government has not given any information about this till now. Local police said the suicide bomber was killed on his way to the embassy. A resident said the explosion on Monday was so powerful that it shattered the windows of nearby houses. Some reports say 20 people died.



People came to apply for visas in front of the Russian Embassy. The initial guess is that they wanted to target. Ria Novosti, the Russian government newspaper, has yet to provide any information on the matter. However, the Russian authorities checked the visa applicants by name when the attack occurred. It is said that two officers were also killed.


In 2016 too, there was a bomb attack in front of the same embassy. Twelve people were killed, and more than 20 were injured in this blast. On Friday, an Afghan cleric and several others were killed in a bomb blast in Herat province. Another explosion in the mosque killed 21 people and wounded 30.
