Violence has again hit the capital of Afghanistan.

The Islamic State (IS) group claimed responsibility on Sunday for a bomb attack in Kabul against a bus carrying passengers, in which a woman was killed.

City police said three people were also injured in the attack.

In total, dozens of people have been killed and dozens of others injured in deadly attacks in the last two weeks of the month of Ramadan, which ends on Sunday.

Already ten dead on Friday

This is the second bomb attack in the capital in a short period of time.

On Friday, ten people were killed in an attack on a mosque while worshipers were performing their religious rituals.

No group claimed responsibility for the mosque attack, but in a statement on Sunday, IS said it was behind the bus attack.

IS has claimed responsibility for several bombings in recent weeks, particularly those targeting minority Shia and Sufi communities in Afghanistan, which has a Sunni majority.

Taliban officials insist their forces have defeated IS, but analysts say the jihadist group remains a major security concern within the country.

Kabul police have promised to "guarantee security" during the Eid al-Fitr holiday, which marks the end of Ramadan.
