The blast took place during an exam in the Dasht-e-Barchi district of western Kabul, home to the Hazara religious minority, which has seen some of the deadliest attacks in Afghanistan.

At least 32 people were killed and more than 40 injured in a suicide bombing followed by a shooting at an educational center west of Kabul, an Afghan government source told Al-Jazeera. The explosion occurred inside the “Kaj” educational center in the Dasht al-Barshi neighborhood, which is populated by Shiites, according to the Associated Press. Kabul police spokesman Khaled Zadran confirmed the blast and said police would provide more information later.

The blast occurred during an exam in the Dasht-e-Barchi district of western Kabul, home to the religious minority of the Hazaras, and some of the deadliest attacks in Afghanistan have occurred.

In recent months, security in the country has begun to deteriorate under the leadership of the hard-line Islamist Taliban. Afghanistan’s Hazara Shiites have faced persecution for decades. They are also a frequent target of attacks by the Islamic State group, an enemy of the Taliban. Both organizations consider them heretics. Countless attacks have taken place in the region, many of which have targeted children, women and schools. Education is a hot topic in Afghanistan, with the Taliban preventing girls from going back to high school, while the Islamic State is opposed to educating women and girls.
