The Taliban administration is facing insurgency since it seized power in August 2021 as Daesh carried out dozens of attacks in Kabul and other parts of the country.
No one immediately claimed responsibility for the blast that hit a bus carrying employees of an oil company.
There have been dozens of blasts and attacks targeting civilians since the Taliban returned to power in August last year, most claimed by the local chapter of Daesh.
The military junta blamed "terrorists" for the attack and said the dead included three prison staff and a 10-year-old girl.
Anti-Pakistan Taliban leader Idrees Khan was among five people killed in the blast caused by an improvised explosive device in the northwestern city of Swat.
French Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin said significant resources were deployed and a crisis centre was activated at the blast site.
At least 33 people have been killed and 43 others wounded in the blast in a Sunni mosque in the city.
At least 10 people were killed and 40 others wounded in a blast inside a Shia mosque in Mazar-e-Sharif, while two other explosions targeted Kunduz and Kabul.
Mohamed Ibrahim Moalimuu appears to be the sole target in the attack, claimed by al Shabab group, near his residence in the capital Mogadishu.
At least four people were killed and 15 others wounded in the explosion outside the Science College in Quetta, the capital of Balochistan province.
At least three people were killed after the explosion, which was likely caused by a gas leak, said authorities, who have opened an investigation.
On the one year anniversary of the event in August this year, Hezbollah’s leader called the investigation ‘politicised’.
