Separate bomb attacks in Afghanistan have left at least 45 people dead and 105 injured.

Twin Taliban blasts struck near the Afghan parliament in Kabul this afternoon, killing at least 31 people and wounding 70 others in the rush-hour attack that shattered a relative lull in violence in the capital.

Taliban insurgents immediately claimed responsibility for the bombings, which struck as employees were exiting the parliament complex.

“The first explosion happened outside the parliament … a number of innocent workers were killed and wounded. It was caused by a suicide bomber on foot,” an injured parliament security guard, told AFP.

“The second one was a car bomb. It was parked on the other side of the road and flung me back when it detonated,” he said.
