A suicide attacker blew himself up near a crowd of police and protesters in Kabul on Thursday, killing at least 11 people and wounding 25 others, in the latest deadly violence to bring carnage to the Afghan capital.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack, which happened during a protest following the death of a shopkeeper during a police operation targeting alcohol and bootleggers,

The deadly assault comes a week after more than 40 were killed and dozens more wounded in a suicide blast, claimed by Islamic State, which targeted Shia Muslims in Kabul.

The capital has become one of the deadliest places in war-torn Afghanistan for civilians in recent months, as the Taliban step up attacks and Isis seeks to expand its presence in the country.

Last week’s assault came days after a suicide bomber killed six civilians in a Christmas Day attack near an Afghan intelligence agency compound in the city, which was also claimed by Isis.
