The final number of casualties remains unclear. So, the death toll may grow further.
No group has claimed responsibility for the attack so far. However, the bombings took place a day after the US Marine Forces reported the death of a suspected top Taliban member Qari Fida Mohammad that allegedly took much earlier.
