A bomb exploded near a school in west Kabul on Saturday, killing at least 25 people, many them young students, Afghan government spokesmen said. Ambulances were rushing to evacuate wounded from the scene of the blast near Syed Al-Shahda school, in the Shiite majority neighborhood of Dasht-e-Barchi, Interior Ministry spokesman Tariq Arian said. Angry crowds attacked the ambulances and even beat health workers, said Health Ministry spokesman Ghulam Dastigar Nazari. He implored residents to cooperate and allow ambulances free access to the site.Images circulating on social media purportedly showed smoke rising above the neighborhood. At one nearby hospital, Associated Press journalists saw at least 20 dead bodies lined up in hallways and rooms, with dozens of wounded people and families of victims pressing through the facility.>> David Petraeus: US troop withdrawal 'is not going to end the endless war in Afghanistan'Outside the Muhammad Ali Jinnah Hospital, dozens of people lined up to donate blood, while family members checked casualty posted lists on the walls.Both Arian and Nazari said that at least 50 people were also wounded, and that the casualty toll could rise.No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, although the Islamic State group previously claimed attacks against minority Shiites in the same area.The attack comes days after the remaining 2,500 to 3,500 American troops officially began leaving the country. They will be out by Sept. 11 at the latest. The pullout comes amid a resurgent Taliban, who control or hold sway over half of Afghanistan. The top U.S. military officer said Sunday that Afghan government forces face an uncertain future and possibly some “bad possible outcomes” against Taliban insurgents as the withdrawal accelerates in the coming weeks(AP)

Chadian security forces fired tear gas to disperse protesters who took to the streets of the capital N'Djamena on Saturday to protest against a military takeover that followed the death of President Idriss Deby on the battlefield last month. On Friday the transitional military government, led by Deby's son Mahamat Idriss Itno, had banned the protest called by a coalition of some opposition parties and civil society groups.A strong ally of Western nations in the fight against Islamist militants in western and central Africa, Chad has seen heightened political tensions since Deby's death.Although the military has promised to organise elections within 18 months, some opposition parties have rejected the military-led transitional government, calling it a coup and a continuation of Deby's 30-year rule.They want the transitional government to be led by a civilian.Defying the ban, groups of protesters took to the streets on Saturday morning, chanting and waving flags, while others held printed messages denouncing what they called a "monarchy"."The police prevented us from demonstrating," said Real Mianrounga, a civil society group leader, who added that he had been injured while trying to flee a police charge on a group that attempted to gather in downtown N'Djamena."Those who resisted were violently reprimanded by the police. There were some injuries," Mianrounga said.Some protesters set several French flags on fire in protest over what they said was France's backing of the military transition in its former colony.At least five people were killed during a similar protest on April 27.French President Emmanuel Macron had signalled strong backing of the military during Deby's funeral which he attended, sitting next to Deby's son Mahamat. But the French government has since shifted, calling for a civilian national unity government. >> Challenges ahead for France in navigating Chad's post-Deby transition(REUTERS)

Live updates on Covid news after UK green list announced
A coronavirus variant first discovered in the United Kingdom now accounts for up to 70% of COVID-19 infections across Pakistan, a research centre studying the disease in the country said on Saturday. "There is a 60% to 70% prevalence of the UK variant in Pakistan (today)," Professor Dr Muhammad Iqbal Chaudhry, director at the International Centre for Chemical and Biological Sciences (ICCBS), University of Karachi, told Reuters, adding that this figure was 2% in January. The "UK variant", known as B.1.1.7 and first identified in Britain late last year, is believed to be more transmissible than other previously dominant coronavirus variants.
