Suicide bomb in Afghanistan leaves 38 dead

Seven suicide bombers disguised as border police leave 38 dead from an attack on a Afghanistan bank on Sunday, according to Sky News.

Thirteen police officers and seven Afghan national army soldiers were among those killed. Seventeen civilians were also killed in the third attack in the last seven days aimed at Afghan police, Sky News reported.

The bank attacked handles the Afghan police and armed forces salaries and is a branch of the Kabulbank, Sky News reported.

The Taliban has taken credit for the attack on the bank, which isn't the first time they have targeted the Kabul Bank. They previously have claimed that the bank is corrupt since the Afghan government is backed by the U.S., the Wall Street Journal reported.
