    Warning – this report contains some graphic images.

    At least 55 people, mostly schoolgirls – have been killed in multiple blasts outside a school in the Afghan capital Kabul and more than 150 others were injured.

    President Ashraf Ghani said the Taliban was behind the attack – but the armed group says ISIL (ISIS) is to blame.

    The attack took place in a predominately Shia and Hazara neighbourhood, groups that have often been the targets of violence due to religious and political differences.
