Suicide bombers stormed a Shiite cultural center and news agency in the Afghan capital on Thursday, killing more than 40 and wounding scores, many of them students attending a conference.Daesh (ISIS) said in an online statement that it was responsible for the attack, the latest in a series the movement has claimed on Shiite targets in Kabul.Over the past two years, ISIS in Khorasan (ISIS-K), as the local group is known, has claimed a growing number of attacks on Shiite targets in Afghanistan, where sectarian attacks were previously rare.Prior to Thursday's attack, there had been at least 12 attacks on Shiite targets since the start of 2016, in which almost 700 people were killed or wounded, according to United Nations figures.
