Suicide bombings in Afghanistan claims 23 lives; many injured

Yet another series of suicide bombings in Afghanistan left 23 people dead while more than a dozen may have been injured.

While Taliban militants stormed an army base in the western province of Farah overnight killing at least 18 soldiers, a suicide bomber detonated explosives in the diplomatic area in Kabul killing another three while wounding five.

The Taliban claimed responsibility for the first attack.

A security source who requested not to be named said the explosion happened near a compound belonging to the National Directorate of Security (NDS), the Afghan intelligence agency.

The NDS compound is located near the NATO headquarters and the US embassy.

Since mid-January, militants have stormed a luxury hotel, bombed a crowded street and raided a military compound in the capital, killing more than 130 people as the city remains on high alert fearing further violence.

The Nad Ali attack was followed by a second suicide car bombing in the provincial capital Lashkar Gah that wounded seven people.
