Today, multiple bomb blasts at a Kabul Shi'a cultural centre, religious school, and Afghan Voice news agency killed at least 41 people and injured 84, Afghanistan's public health ministry spokesperson Waheed Majrooh said.

According to reports it was a suicide attack. According to multiple reports and eye-witnesses, at least three explosions were heard. Militant group Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) claimed the responsibility of this attack via Amaq News Agency. Children were gathered at the Tebyan cultural centre on the 38th anniversary of the Soviet invasion in mostly Sunni Afghanistan.

In 2017, at least 73 attacks on journalists took place in Afghanistan, according to the Afghan Journalists Safety Committee. There have been multiple attacks on Shi'a Muslims in Afghanistan by ISIL. 39 were killed in an attack on October 21 at a Shi'a mosque in Afghan's capital Kabul. More than 80 were killed in another attack in May when a truck bomb detonated in Kabul's Wazir Akbar Khan area.
