Corrected - Blast at election centre in Afghan capital, at least four dead

People gather outside a voter registration center which was attacked by a suicide bomber in Kabul Sunday

Suicide attack on a voter registration center in the Afghan capital Kabul on Sunday has killed four and wounded at least fifteen people, an official confirmed.

The large explosion echoed across the city, shattering windows miles away from the attack site and damaging several nearby vehicles.

The so-called Islamic State carried out the attack, the militant group's AMAQ news agency said, without providing any more details or evidence to support its claim.

Voter registration centres have been set up across Afghanistan in preparation for long-delayed parliamentary elections due to be held in October and there have been serious concerns that they could be targeted by attacks.

However, the Taliban's main spokesman issued a statement on Twitter denying involvement.

In the northern Balkh province, a district police chief died of his wounds after being shot Saturday during a gunbattle with insurgents, according to Sher Jan Durrani, spokesman for the provincial police chief.

The Taliban claimed responsibility for the killing.
