The Taliban has claimed responsibility for another deadly suicide car bombing in Afghanistan, a day after a series of terrorist blasts killed more than 50 in and near Kabul.

In a statement sent to VOA, the Taliban said it was behind Saturday's explosion in the Khanabad district of the northern Kunduz province. Afghan officials said Sunday that the death toll from the blast had risen to 29.

Most of the dead were members of a pro-government militia.

The Afghan capital is nervous and people are on edge after the worst outbreak of terrorism since the Taliban confirmed it is under new leadership after the death of founder Mullah Mohammad Omar.

The Taliban claimed responsibility for sending in three suicide bombers to attack Camp Integrity Friday, a U.S. special forces base near the main airport in Kabul.

Eight civilian military contractors and a U.S. serviceman were killed late Friday during an attack on Camp Integrity, a U.S. special forces base near the main airport in Kabul. The Pentagon identified the soldier on Sunday as Master Sgt. Peter McKenna.

Earlier Friday, a Taliban suicide bomber dressed in a police uniform blew himself up in a crowd of cadets at an Afghan police academy in Kabul. At least 27 were killed and more than 25 wounded.

But no one has yet claimed responsibility for Friday's truck bombing in a residential area of Kabul which killed at least 15 and wounded 240, mostly civilians.

塔利班声称对阿富汗多次炸弹袭击负责

美国之音古尔,2015年8月10日

在恐怖分子制造的一系列爆炸导致喀布尔50多人丧生一天之后,塔利班又声称对另一次造成死亡的汽车炸弹爆炸负责。

塔利班在答复美国之音的声明中说,北部昆都士省汗阿巴德地区星期天的爆炸事件是他们指使的。阿富汗官员星期天说,死亡人数已经上升到29人,其中有很多是支持政府的民兵。

阿富汗首都气氛紧张,民众对塔利班证实该组织创建人奥马尔死亡、新头目接班后发生最严重的恐怖袭击感到不安。

塔利班承认星期五派遣了三名自杀爆炸手去袭击靠近喀布尔主要机场的美军特别部队基地。在基地工作的8名平民和一名美国军人被炸死。

星期五稍早,身着警察制服的塔利班自杀爆炸手在喀布尔一个阿富汗警察学院的一群新兵当中引爆炸弹。至少27人被炸死,超过25人受伤。

目前还没有人出面对周五喀布尔一个居民区遭到卡车炸弹袭击承担负责,那次爆炸造成至少15人丧生,240人受伤,死伤者主要是平民。
