Topic: Attack on Afghan University Leaves at Least 22 Dead
Summary: Islamic State militants attacked Kabul University on Monday as it held a book fair attended by the Iranian ambassador. The attack led to an hours-long gun battle at the largest school in Afghanistan. When the fighting stopped, at least 22 people were dead, and 22 others wounded. Most of those who died were students.
The Islamic State group claimed responsibility for the attack. That information comes from the SITE Intelligence Group, which studies online messaging from groups suspected of terrorist acts.
The Islamic State, or IS, said it targeted newly graduated “judges and investigators belonging to the apostate Afghan government.”
An IS statement claimed only two of its fighters were involved, which conflicted with the Afghan spokesman’s report of three attackers. The group did not say they planned to target the Iranian official or the book fair.
It was the second attack on an educational institution in Kabul in two weeks. On October 24, IS claimed responsibility for attacking a learning center in Dasht-e-Barchi, a mostly Shiite neighborhood of Kabul. At least 24 students were killed in that attack. Over 100 others were wounded.

It would be very bad for their future. Moreover, now the ration has been reduced which is making it very difficult to maintain the family.
