KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani strongly condemned a suicide attack targeting a celebrated female lawmaker in the central capital Kabul on Sunday.

The outspoken Wolesi Jirgainfo-icon member, Shukria Barakzai, was slightly injured in the car suicide bombing that left three bystanders dead and 22 others wounded in the Darul Aman area.

President Ghani in a statement said the attack on Barakzai car was a terrorist and un-Islamic act.

Ghani ordered a deep investigation into the incident. The statement said the condition of Shukria Barakzai was stable.

Barakzai is a womeninfo-icon's rights advocate and a close ally of Ghani, who appointed her to help choose a new Cabinet after he took office in late September.

No group has so far claimed responsibility for the attack.
