A suicide bomb attack at a voter registration center in the Afghan capital Kabul has killed at least 52 people, officials say. The dead include 21 women and five children. They were killed when the blast hit the line of people outside. A further 112 people were injured. The Islamic State group (IS) said it had carried out the attack.

Voter registration began this month for legislative elections which are due to take place in October. A suicide bomber wearing an explosive belt had targeted the center, which is in the Dashte Barchi area of western Kabul.

There have already been at least four attacks on such centers since voter registration got underway a week ago.
