Mourners bury family, friends and classmates after Kabul suicide attack - in pictures

At least 34 students studying for college entrance exams were killed in the attack on Wednesday

Shiite residents of Kabul held a funeral for victims of a suicide bombing which killed at least 34 people, many of them students.

A member of ISIS detonated his device on Wednesday in the private Mawoud educational centre in the Dasht-e-Barchi area of the Afghan capital – a largely Shia Hazara area.

Photographs showed a devastated classroom with its roof blown away. At least 15 ambulances attended the scene and local trauma hospitals were overwhelmed by the influx of students in need of emergency care.
