The UN Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres, reacting to yesterday’s attack on Kaaj education center in Kabul, urged the Taliban to protect the rights of people to access education.

“Dozens of adolescent girls & boys were killed today in a heinous attack on an educational center in Kabul City,” Guterres tweeted. “The de facto authorities must protect the rights of all Afghans – regardless of ethnicity or gender – to access education safely and securely.”

The explosion took place at Kaaj education center in PD 13, Dasht-e-Barchi area this morning, as a result approximately 100 people- the majority of them girls- killed and wounded.

The attack triggered a wide range of reactions inside and outside of Afghanistan.

So far no individual or group has claimed the responsibility.
