She also said Washington had not seen "decisive and sustained changes from Pakistan", which Afghan and US officials have accused of supporting the Taliban.

"Suicide attacks are a part of our daily life that we see but can't do anything about", said Hayad, who uses only one name, and is a resident of the Hazara neighbourhood where the explosion took place.

Also, Pakistani Taliban on Friday confirmed the loss of their 21 members in a rare U.S. drone strike on their alleged training facility in Afghanistan's eastern Kunar province near the border with Pakistan's Mohmand Agency.

Daesh terrorists and Taliban militants also massacred dozens of civilians, mostly Shia Hazaras, during an attack on a village in Afghanistan's northern province of Sar-e Pul last August.

Ten local policemen were killed and nine were wounded in the ambus, provincial police spokesman Khali Aseir said.

Members of the local police who were sent to assist the soldiers were ambushed by the Taliban while on their way to the outpost in the remote district of Khwaja Ghar.
