A day after the deadly attack was reported in Afghanistan, the United Nations mission in the country said that the death toll from a suicide bombing of a classroom in Kabul has risen to at least 35, AFP reported on Saturday.

On Friday, a suicide bomber blew himself up at a study hall in the Afghan capital’s western district of Dasht-e-Barchi as hundreds of pupils were taking tests in preparation for university entrance exams.

The neighborhood is a predominantly Shiite Muslim enclave and home to the minority Hazara community.
