Multiple bombings rocked Kabul, killing at least 36 people and wounding hundreds more in the deadliest day in the Afghan capital since the end of the NATO combat mission in December. The explosions, which devastated buildings and overwhelmed hospitals with casualties, are the first major militant assaults on Kabul since the announcement of Taliban leader Mullah Omar’s death. In the first attack, a powerful truck bomb tore through the center of Kabul just after midnight on Friday, killing 15 civilians and wounding 240 others. Less than 24 hours later, at least 20 Afghan cadets were killed when a suicide attacker dressed in police uniform blew himself up at the entrance of Kabul police academy. The Taliban distanced themselves from the first bombing but were quick to claim responsibility for the second attack, which marks a serious breach of security at a premier training institute for Afghan security forces. Explosions and gunfire also erupted when Camp Integrity, a base near the airport housing US special forces, came under attack late Friday, killing one NATO service member whose nationality was not revealed. Military jets were heard flying over the center of Kabul shortly after the explosions. Fridays bombings are the first major attacks after Mullah Akhtar Mansour was last week named as the new Taliban chief.
