 Taliban militants said a deadly ambulance bomb explosion in Afghanistan on Saturday was a special message for US President Donald Trump. The Taliban claimed responsibility for the blast that killed 103 people.

The Islamic Emirate is the Taliban term to refer to its own group.

The explosion that rocked Kabul on Saturday (27/1) local time, came from two bombs hidden in two vehicles painted to resemble an ambulance car. One of the bombs exploded when an ambulance-like car stopped at one of the police checkpoints in Kabul.

A recent statement by Afghan Interior Minister Wais Barmak said the death toll from the blast rose to 103. Another 235 people were injured.

Afghan security authorities warn that new attacks could resume in the future.

On Monday (29/1) local time, a series of recent explosions reportedly occurred near military academy Marshal Fahim, Kabul. The Kabul Police spokesman confirmed an incident occurred inside a military facility near the Marshal Fahim Academy. Kabul residents, Mohammad Ehsan, called the explosion started at around 0500 local time and lasted for one hour.

But it can not be known for sure whether this explosion is a militant attack or triggered by internal military issues.

Indonesian President Joko Widodo is scheduled to visit Kabul on Monday (29/1).
