Afghan journalists are seen after a second blast in Kabul, Afghanistan, April 30, 2018. Journalists covering a bomb blast during the morning rush hour were standing in a loose group near the site of the explosion when a suicide bomber struck, killing seven people outright and wounding several, two of whom later died. The bomber appeared to have deliberately targeted journalists, presenting a press card to police before joining the group standing near the first blast site, interior ministry spokesman Najib Danesh said. In all, 26 people died in the two Kabul blasts, which were claimed by Islamic State.
