Twin bomb blasts in the Afghan capital Kabul have killed at least 24 people and injured 91 others near the defence ministry, officials say.
The first bomb was detonated remotely while the second was triggered by a suicide bomber, local media reported.
An army general and two senior police officers are among the dead, a ministry of defence spokesperson said.
The Taliban, who have carried out frequent attacks in Kabul, claimed the blasts.
Deputy defence ministry spokesman Mohammad Radmanish told the Associated Press news agency that the suicide attacker struck as security forces gathered near the ministry to deal with the first blast. He said civilians, police and soldiers were all killed as ministry employees were leaving work at rush hour.
President Ashraf Ghani condemned the attack saying it had been carried out by “the enemies of Afghanistan who have lost their ability to fight the security and defence forces”.
