CAIRO (Reuters) - Islamic State claimed responsibility for a suicide bombing near a military training centre in the Afghan capital earlier on Thursday, the militant group said on its Amaq news agency.

The blast killed at least six people and wounded six more, two security officials said, without elaborating.

Amaq published an image of a man it said was the suicide bomber who carried out the attack. The claim could not be independently verified.
