Two members of a single family were killed in the blast that occurred near the Wazir Akbar Khan mosque in Kabul on Friday.
The Ministry of Interior (MoI) confirmed the deaths of seven people in the blast. More than 40 people were wounded, according to Abdul Nafay Takor, a spokesman for the MoI.
Hadisa and her eight-year-old son were killed in the blast.
“My wife and eight-year-old son have been killed and one daughter of mine has disappeared,” said Omer Gul, Hadisa’s husband.
Another child of the family had disappeared, but according to relatives the child was found later on.
“There was a boy who was working as a shoe polisher. He told me that he has taken the child with himself to his home… then we went and brought him home,” said Nasreen, mother of Hadisa.
The Kabul residents called on the Islamic Emirate to tighten security in the country.
“The people are so poor and destructive. Every home has seen two, three or even five funerals,” said Abdul Hudod, a resident of Kabul.
The MoI meanwhile vowed to provide a better security for the people.
“We assure our nation that your forces are making efforts days and night to provide security,” said Abdul Nafay Takor, a spokesman for the MoI.
No one has claimed responsibility for the attack that has also triggered reactions at a national and international level.
