At least 20 people lost their lives on Monday when a suicide bomber attacked a police building in Kabul.

The Taliban has claimed the attack, which injured at least 29 more near the headquarters of the National Civil Order Police force, DPA reported. Police spokesman Basi Mujahid told the press that the attacker pretended to join the line of civilians waiting to enter the headquarters after the break for lunch and midday prayers. After being spotted outside the gate, he set off the explosives.

"Unfortunately the majority of the killed and wounded are civilians," Mujahid said, adding that two police officers had died while a third was among the injured.
