ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attack at an Afghan wedding hall in a Shi'ite neighborhood.
The blast was the latest in a series to have hit Shi’ite targets in the Afghan capital.

The attacks occurred hours after militants killed two people in a Christian neighborhood in the same region.
The Taliban, Islamic State, Boko Haram and other groups are known to use children as weapons.
A group of women and children were among the dead.
