Radio Free Europe reported that Islamic State militants claimed responsibility for the attack in an online statement that said a Shia gathering was the target.

Officials said a suicide bomber blew himself up in, Kabul, Afghanistan, on Friday, killing seven people in an attack apparently meant to hit crowds gathered to commemorate a political leader from the mainly Shi'ite Hazara minority.

In Friday's attack, Basir Mujahid, spokesman for the Kabul police chief, said the bomber was on foot and was trying to make his way to a compound where the Hazaras had gathered to commemorate the 1995 death of their leader, Abdul Ali Mazari, who was killed by the Taliban.

The son of proscribed Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) chief Mullah Fazlullah, along with 19 other militants, was killed in the United States drone strike across the border in Afghanistan on Wednesday morning.

Provincial Police Spokesman said Taliban attacked an army outpost in a remote region of northern Takhar province killing ten policemen.

At the 2nd Kabul Process Conference on February 28, Afghanistan President Ashraf Ghani called on the Taliban to participate in peace talks to "save the country" while offering security and incentives like passports to insurgents who take part in the negotiations.

Top Republican Ryan Slams Trump Tariff Move
Many Republicans hold that imposing tariffs on steel and aluminum are an abuse of this law and are pushing to restrict it. Flake's move came amid a loud chorus of criticism from Republicans, traditionally a free-trade party, for Trump's action.

In return, Ghani said the militants should officially recognise the Afghan government and constitution, a perennial sticking point in past attempts to open talks.

At least seven people were killed, including one police officer, while at least seven more people were left wounded. He blamed the Taliban and Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), both of which have targeted ethnic Hazaras in the past.

Officials later put the death toll at 10 and said 22 others were wounded.

India has supported the recent move of the unity government in Afghanistan for peace talks with the Taliban, saying the "irreconcilable guns" in the war-torn country need to be silenced.

Fazlullah and his Taliban militants are part of ongoing frustration from the US and Kabul toward Pakistan's efforts to combat insurgents.
