Interior ministry said, at least three blasts happened near Sayed-ul-Shuhada High School on Saturday afternoon. It happened when students were leaving the school. The death toll is likely to rise further.
 
A school teacher said, a car bomb blast happened first, and then two more explosions occurred near the girls school. He added that the majority of victims are girls. No group or individual have so far claimed responsibility for the blasts.
 
Afghanistan has been on since the US announced its plan to withdraw all US troops by September 11 this year.

It offered heartfelt condolences to the victim’s families and wished speedy recovery to those hurt.
