KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The National Security Council (NSC) on Thursday condemned Wednesday’s suicide attack on a private tuition center in capital Kabul, saying the incident would be comprehensively investigated.

The suicide bomber walked into the educational center in Dasht-i-Barchi area of Kabul city and detonated his vest bomb when classes were underway.

He told Pajhwok Afghan News that 35 people had been killed and 75 others wounded in the incident.

On the other hand, National Security Advisor (NSA) Hanif Atmar condemned the attack and ordered a probe.

“I strongly condemn this terrorist attack, this great nation would never forgive such a savage attack,” the statement quoted Atmar as saying.

He said organs concerned had been ordered to deeply investigate the attack and provide urgent medical assistance to those wounded.
