Dozens of people have been killed and many others injured in a spate of deadly attacks that have taken place over the last two weeks of Ramadan, which ends on Sunday. One woman was killed and three others seriously injured in the bus attack in Kabul, local police confirmed.

The bombing was the second attack over the weekend after 10 people were killed on Friday when a bomb tore through a mosque as worshippers were conducting prayers.

No group has yet claimed responsibility for Friday's mosque bombing but Islamic State has confirmed that they were behind the attack on the bus.

The Islamic State group has claimed to be responsible for several bombings in recent weeks.

Taliban officials continue to insist that their forces have defeated Islamic State, however, analysts claim that the jihadist group is still a strong security threat within the country.

Kabul police have promised to "ensure security" during the Eid al-Fitr holiday that marks the end of Ramadan.
