Islamic State claims responsibility for Kabul suicide attack - Amaq

CAIRO, Jan 4 (Reuters) - Islamic State claimed responsibility for a suicide attack on Thursday in Afghanistan’s capital Kabul, the militant group’s Amaq news agency said.

Officials in the capital said the attacker blew himself up close to a group of security personnel who were carrying out an operation against illegal drugs and alcohol dealing.

The report by Amaq gave no evidence to support the claim.
