Car bomb kills dozens in Afghanistan

A vehicle bombing in Afghanistan's Logar Province on Friday killed at least 25 people and injured more than 60, including multiple high school students, according to Afghanistan's TOLO News.

The big picture: Hasib Stanekzai, head of the Logar provincial council, said the attack targeted people staying in a public building in the city of Pul-e-Alam. No group has claimed responsibility.

  • "Violence in Afghanistan has escalated in recent weeks after U.S. President Joe Biden announced the U.S. would withdraw troops by Sept. 11 to end two decades of foreign military presence," Reuters noted.
